Southern Japan. China (Anhuei, Zhejiang).
Okame-zasa (Japan) * Withstands -22ºC
Very particular-looking bamboo with a false Ruscus appearance (small holly) due to its short and wide leaves, of a noble green. It develops in dense clumps and does not let the stems show.
In direct sunlight, in southern countries, its leaves tend to yellow. Install it in shaded areas knowing, however, that by being placed completely in the shade, it will become less dense.
Borders, small free or pruned hedges, ground cover, massifs.
Its foliage gives it a unique look among dwarf bamboos. It lends itself perfectly to pruning and allows for splendid massifs or low hedges.
