Common name: Pygmy bamboo

Native to: Japan

 

A lovely, compact dwarf Japanese bamboo with tough, bright green evergreen leaves that fan out in neatly-arranged groups, giving the appearance of a palm or fern.

 

As one of the smallest bamboos available with a spreading, carpet-forming growth habit, it's perfect for using as a groundcover plant where it can be clipped or mowed to keep it at an even height. It's also well-suited for use as a bonsai plant and makes a great choice for growing in a container.
