Bought this for 30p at a car boot sale, Have replanted in 2 large pots (more there than it looks). Anyone able to ID it, any advice in general?
I don't think it's bamboo, I think it's ribbon grass.
I think you're right Dave
Oooo errr, didn't expect that! Would the car boot seller think hers is bamboo or maybe mixed up in pots/labelling? (not that it matters). What I mean is will it grow tall like bamboo and need containing? I'll have a google
That's 1, no it grows to 1-3 ft, and 2, yes it spreads
It's not a tall plant but being a perennial grass it does spread a bit like couch grass. I had one years ago and it has a habit of going where you don't want it to go. So I got rid in the end. Pretty, but it spreads quite freely.
Hi Mrs Garden
Google shiroshima japanese variegated bamboo to see if it is that
