It’s one of the common bamboos in the United States, and for a good reason, although usually not very tall, it is one of the strongest and most useful. Growing rigidly uprights, this bamboo is one of the best for hedges and for planting next to driveways and walkways. It’s often has a series of distorted internodes at the base of the cane, sometimes called “Tortoise Shell” internodes that are quite ornamental and make this plant useful for craft work.
Culm colour of the species type is green. Like other Phyllostachys, when exposed to strong direct sunlight, the canes will fade to yellow with age. It can be an aggressive spreader in hot climates, where care must be used in its placement.
