Uses: Tall groundcover, short hedge 

     An unique shorter bamboo with dark green leaves. An excellent tall groundcover or short hedge, this species is especially suited to climates similar to that of the Pacific Northwest or the Northeastern US. The bamboo does not do well with alkaline or water-logged soil. It needs acidic conditions to prevent leaf burn. It is sometimes called Ruscus-leafed bamboo, as the shape of the leaves resembles that of the Ruscus genus. This bamboo is very resistant to bamboo mites.
