Product Description

A tall-growing, evergreen and vigorous bamboo, Pseudosasa japonica produces a dense growth of hollow canes with arrow-shaped, shiny green leaves. Spikes of greeny-brown flowers can appear at any time of year.

Forming attractive and long-lasting clumps, it is ideal for hedges or screening or even as a windbreak for patio or barbecue areas.

One of the fastest-growing bamboos, it is slowly invasive if left unchecked, so best in large pots, or with plenty of space in lawns. If you are planting near a wall or foundations, remember to use a physical barrier.

It is tolerant of hot summers and cold winters, although leaves can be damaged by extreme cold and wind. Damaged leaves can be removed in spring as the new shoots emerge. Very hardy, it needs little care, but make sure your plants are well-watered in summer and don't let them dry out if you are growing yours in a pot.

Supplied as 2 x 60-70cm tall plants in a 1L pot ready to plant out or re-pot.

Plant Information

Top Tips

  • The hollow canes can be harvested to provide support for other plants in your garden.
  • Best in a large container, but if you need to plant in the garden, ensure that a physical barrier is placed around the roots to stop them invading surrounding areas.
  • Remove flower spikes to discourage further blooms.

Care Guide

  • Plant in moist but well-drained, fertile soil in full sun or part shade in a sheltered or exposed location. If planting more than one, allow at least 100cm distance between them to allow room to spread.
  • Apply a liquid fertiliser in spring and mulch in winter to protect the roots.
  • Pseudosasa japonica grows vigorously, so prune regularly to prevent from spreading further than desired.
  • In the spring, unwanted or spindly canes should be cut down to ground level. New shoots can also be pruned once they grow taller than the rest of the plant if you wish to maintain a compact size.
