A highly ornamental plant, this uncommon bamboo is a bit of a collector’s item. The fine, upright culms bear green leaves that are marked with broad creamy-white stripes. Leave it untrimmed and grow it as a clump, hedge or as groundcover, or prune it cleverly to make a gorgeous specimen. It grows in most sites and conditions, and is perfectly at home in a large pot or other container.
