This species has very erect canes which to a beautiful purple or dark reddish color. A close branching habit results in elegant plumes of leaves being formed at the tops of the culms. The culms are thin-walled and turn shades of purple, rose, or wine in full sun. Some culms turn a solid gold color which is quite striking with the dark green leaves. Narihira makes impressive looking high screens and windbreaks.
