Pleioblastus argenteostriatus f. pumilus (Large Plant)

Pleioblastus humilis var. pumilus, Dwarf Bamboo

Hardy Perennial

Bamboo are much admired plants for the garden, but the larger specimens can sometimes be too tall and cumbersome for a small garden. Pleioblastus argenteostriatus f. pumilis is a dwarf bamboo, which is low-maintenance and evergreen, with deep green leaves and red-flushed canes. This dwarf bamboo will modernise any border or patio with its tropical appearance. Plants are hardy and will last for many years. Height: 1.2m (4'). Spread: up to 2m (6.6').

When growing Dwarf Bamboo in pots, choose a soil based compost such as John Innes No. 3. Repot the plant, firming well into the new container, then water well and position in full sun or semi shade. Alternatively plant Dwarf Bamboos directly into borders in any moist, free draining soil in sun or semi-shade. Bamboos dislike poor, dry soils. If your soil is particularly free draining, improve it by adding plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost prior to planting. Choose a sheltered position that is protected from cold, drying winds. Pleioblastus argenteostriatus f. pumilis spreads via underground rhizomes so is best given space to grow. Alternatively surround the roots with a barrier to restrict the plant’s spread.
Feed and water bamboo plants regularly, particularly when grown in containers. Repot into successively larger containers as plants increase in size. Once bamboo plants are established, thin out any weak, damaged or unwanted canes in spring, cutting them back to ground level, and apply a mulch of well rotted manure or compost to the base of the plant. Mature bamboos can be divided in spring if clumps become congested.
