This is a recent introduction that makes a quick-growing, flashy, flamboyant show. The new spring shoots burst up through the ground, and reach full height in midsummer when they start branching and the protective, parchment-like sheaths turn white, making it one the most startling bamboos around. Gradually, the sheaths will be shed from the top downwards, though the papery sheaths at the base of the branches hang on and turn red over winter. Good for hedging, screening or as an isolated, eye-catching clump. For better winter colour, choose 'Red Sheath'.
