It has leaves striped chartreuse and green it makes this one of the most beautiful groundcovers. It’s also very useful as a small, bright specimen shrub in a mixed border when allowed growing to its full height.
This bamboo will brighten dark locations, but it should have some sunlight. As a groundcover bamboo, it is best mowed to ground level in early spring to produce new, fresh foliage.
