Palmata Bamboo

Sasa palmata
Maximum heigth 7′

Cold hardy to 5 F.

This bamboo resembles a tropical shrub more than a bamboo.  The leaves have a “palm” look. The grove pictured  below was on the sides of our underground homes entrance and was getting out of hand.  A couple of years ago we dug up all the rhizomes and removed the bamboo.
