Description: It is a species native to the town of Chekiang in China and is widely cultivated. It has opaque green culms. The young shoots are edible.
Planting Tips: It is a cold-resistant species and prefers a sunny position rather than one in the shade, which allows optimal plant growth. The reproduction occurs through creeping rhizomes, mostly underground that spread with rapidly and emit new shoots especially in the rainy season. Together with the Phyllostachys aurea and nigra is one of the most popular species among the many we cultivate in the nurseries of Torsanlorenzo Group.
Good Companion Plant:Shibataea kumasaca, a unique dwarf bamboo with dark green leaves.
