Yushania brevipaniculata

(formerly Yushania chungii)

Max/Avg Height (ft.): 10, 8

Diameter: 0.5 inch

Hardiness: -4° F

USDA Zones: 6-9, Not recommended for climates with a lot of intense heat or high summer humidity (including most of the southern USA)

Y. brevipaniculata is shorter and more upright than our other Yushania. The new shoots are very unusual, with the oral setae at the tip of the shoot. This newly-released bamboo is good for a short (6 to 8 foot) hedge or screen. In many ways this bamboo resembles a Fargesia. Like other Yushania, this bamboo has rhizomes that are technically clumping rhizome type, but because it is so vigorous and has long rhizome "necks", we consider any Yushania to be a spreading bamboo, though not as fast as Phyllostachys.  It is fairly deep rooted, making it good for erosion control.
