Special Attributes

Dwarf Green Stripe Bamboo is an exceptionally colorful low growing bamboo reaching 3 to 6 feet tall with 6 to 8 inch long yellow leaves striped with green. If you have a large sunny to partially shaded area you want to cover with attractive green foliage this plant is a great choice for a tall groundcover. It is often used as an accent or under-story plant in larger bamboo groves. Great for use filling large above ground pots, planters and other containers. It's dense foliage does a great job of suppressing weeds. If you want to contain it to a smaller landscape space we suggest using Bamboo Root Barrier or some other method to control its spread.

Cultural Preferences

Dwarf Green Stripe Bamboo grows well in any average, medium moisture, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. This species will form large colonies if not controlled. If planted in an area where unlimited spread is not acceptable, underground barriers should be installed to control spread. Can be trimmed or mowed to the ground every year to stimulate all fresh new growth for the current season.

Dwarf Green Stripe Bamboo is a running bamboo, which means it spreads, and this one will spread far and wide if not controlled. This might be a good thing if you intend on using it as a groundcover in a large area, however, if you intend on using it in a small space we suggest the use of  Bamboo Root Barrier to control spread.
