Decora Beautiful Bamboo - Phyllostachys mannii 'Decora'
Called the Beautiful Bamboo, the new spring shoots are a striking cream and violet color. The very erect cane sheaths are dark green with pale green and white stripes and supple foliage. Because it performs exceptionally well under heat, cold and drought stress this bamboo is very easy to grow. Grows well as far north as Massachusetts and also likes the hot and dry conditions in Arizona, Nevada and other parts of the Desert Southwest. More details below

Decora Beautiful Bamboo
Phyllostachys mannii 'Decora'

USDA Plant Hardiness Zones: 6a-11  Find Your Zone

Note:  For our customers who live and garden north of USDA Plant Hardiness Zone 6a, where this Bamboo variety is not reliably winter hardy, you'll be happy to know it can be grown in containers that can be brought indoors during winter and placed back outside when temperatures warm up in spring.



Special Attributes

From the Yangtze valley and adjacent areas of China comes what the Chinese call the Beautiful Bamboo. The new spring shoots are a striking cream and violet color. The very erect cane sheaths are dark green with pale green and white stripes and supple foliage. Sheath auricles and oral setae are present, but small. Because it performs exceptionally well under heat, cold and drought stress this bamboo is very easy to grow. Grows well as far north as Massachusetts and also likes the hot and dry conditions in Arizona, Nevada and other parts of the Desert Southwest.

Cultural Preferences

Decora Beautiful Bamboo grows well in most any average well-drained moist to dry soil and full sun to part shade. When established it is exceptionally heat, cold and drought tolerant. 

Decora Beautiful Bamboo is a running bamboo, which means it spreads. Bamboo can be controlled in a small area (a normal city yard) simply by mowing or stepping on the young shoots. New shoots of some bamboo can also be used for culinary purposes and cooked, much like asparagus. Keep in mind that running bamboo only puts up new shoots for a short time each year and, when they are "shooting," the new plants are very fragile and easy to destroy. Root pruning or a Bamboo Root Barrier are other methods to control spread.
