A probable hybrid of Ph. nigra 'Henon' and Sasa veitchii f. tyugokensis from Mt. Hiba on Honshu, Japan. Both forms of the plant are aggressive runners with single branches and wide leaves up to 10" long and 1½" wide. The species grow about 15' tall, are cold hardy to -5 degrees, and and make good container plants and screens. Shoots in the spring.
(HBT) Similar to HBTS, but this is the all green form.
(HBTS) Quite striking for its brightly variegated leaves, which are white and yellow with vivid green stripes and about 1 ½"” x 8-10"” in size. Canes are fairly unremarkable and are largely hidden by the leaves in the mature plant. The young plant has a rather open look, however. Makes an excellent screen up to 15'’ in height. Likes full sun in temperate climates, but half to full-day of shade in very hot climates. Cold hardy to -5 degrees.
