Common Name: "Green Onion Bamboo"
Height: 18 feet, usually 10 to 15'

Recommended for USDA zone 7
This form has swollen culm and rhizome internodes that resemble
a string of beads or a "green onion", hence the common name. It usually is
shorter than the regular Pseudosasa japonica but has the same leaf pattern.
Makes a good mid-sized screen with an interesting cane feature.
Nice container plant for indoors or outdoors.
