Inyou-chiku * Withstands -20ºC
A hybrid between a Sasa and a Phyllostachys: it’s interesting to find characteristics of these ascendants. In short, we can say that it has the broad leaf of Sasa and the smooth stem of Phyllostachys, and a more elegant frame than a Sasa and more stubby one than a Phyllostachys. The leaves of the year are almost twice as long and wider on the stem than the leaves on the stems of the previous year.
It develops in all regions, particularly resistant to cold and drought.
Isolated tufts, hedges, flowerbeds.
Bountiful and interesting plant due to the density of its foliage. Used in Japan in plot separation hedges.
