Growing to an average height of 2.5 feet, this plant has bold white-on-green variegated leaves. Sometimes growing taller, it can be kept short by mowing or clipping back the foliage to ground level in the spring before the plant sends up new shoots. It grows best in shade but can tolerate up to 6 hours of direct sun (in Portland, Oregon). Formerly called Pleioblastus variegatus, and one of our most desired groundcover bamboos.
