Description

Pseudosasa japonica, Arrow Bamboo, is a robust and vigourous bamboo from Japan and Korea, readily capable of surviving British winters. A tough and hardy bamboo, Pseudosasa japonica also has an exotic and lush jungly feel with its tall thin straight-growing culms and large attractive foliage. A strong-growing species, it is best grown in a sizeable container or in a large area where its eventual and inevitable spread will not be a problem. A root-barrier membrane will probably be needed in other areas.

Although some thought and care needs to be exercised with positioning Pseudosasa japonica, it is an attractive and very exotic-looking bamboo which lends itself well to jungle plantings. Its lush large leaves and tough disposition are a great combination in the right location.
