Sasa veitchii

Sasa veitchii

A hardy, shade tolerant groundcover slowly reaching about 4ft.(1.2m). 

Also useful as a  specimen plant when it is particularly effective during the winter months.

The culms are purple - green and there is prominent bleaching of the leaf margins in winter, giving the appearance of bold variegation. 

Sun or shade . Suitable for containers.

Not so rampant as Sasa palmata but siting should take account of its ability to spread.

 Has withstood -25C.
