Bamboos never look their best in winter because the cold, drying winds will often scorch their leaves. In late spring however, new canes will appear bearing a fresh batch of lush foliage.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: humus-rich, moist, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    This bamboo is unusual in that the leaves are a glossy green throughout the summer, but in the autumn they start to dry out at the margins to create a straw-coloured variegated appearance.

  • Garden care: Plant in a large container or surround the roots with a non-perishable barrier that restricts the plant's spread.
