    This medium-sized bamboo has thin yellow-green arching canes and a mass of small soft mid-green leaves. Its arching habit and fairly speedy rate of growth make it an ideal choice for an informal hedge and because it is also compact it makes a lovely exotic specimen or container plant for small gardens. It is also tolerant of wind and full sun.
  • Garden care: Do not allow to dry out while the plant is getting established. Plant in a large container or surround the roots with a non-perishable barrier that restricts the plant's spread.
