Shiroshima Bamboo

Hibanobambusa tranquillans 'Shiroshima'

Height: 16′
Diameter: .75″
Cold Resistance: -5 F.
Light:partial sun to moderate shade

This bamboo has some of the most striking variegated leaves of any bamboo, a beautiful creamy white and green.  I have a couple of small groves of this and they are planted in poor soil with almost no sun.  They have never reached over about 8 to 10 feet tall and spread out a great deal.  I’ve seen a grove in almost full sun and it was much taller and fuller.
