Our one gallon crop of S. ramosa.

Sasaella ramosa

Groundcover bamboo
Height: 1.5 to 3 feet
Hardiness: 0 F
USDA zone 7 through 9

This hardy groundcover is fairly sun tolerant and makes a nice hedge or mound of dark green foliage. It is a vigorous grower and seems to thrive just about anywhere. In climates colder than 10F it will show some leaf die-back in the winter, but it comes back strong every spring. It will look the most uniform when trimmed back to ground level each March, just before shooting season.
