Semiarundinaria –
There are 10-20 tall, slow growing, upright bamboos in the Poaceae family, in this genus. They are found naturally occurring from deciduous woodlands, upland slopes, and ravines in temperate and subtropical China and Japan. They generally have running rhizomes, but form dense clumps in cool climates. Smooth, cylindrical culms, with short lived, sometimes persistent, sheaths, some with upper inter-nodes grooved or flattened, carry 3-7 branches at each node, with checkered, narrowly lance shaped leaves. Grow in a woodland garden, as a specimen plant, or as informal hedge.
Grow in moderately fertile, humus rich, moist but well drained soil in full sun or dappled shade. Divide in spring.
Prone to slugs.
