A genus of running bamboos similar to Sasa except with straight culms and smaller leaves. They usually have one branch per node and they shoot in the spring.
(SBMA) Ground cover bamboo with dark green foliage that grows to 14" in the shade and 4' in full sun. Hardy to 0 degrees. For best results, mow in late winter or early spring. Plants will leaf out again within a month or two.
(SBMS) Also known as "Sam Bamboo." A very attractive ground cover with upright foliage, remaining fresh looking throughout the year. Shiney dark green leaves have a sprinkling of bright yellow and cream stripes. It commonly grows 3-6' tall and is hardy to -10 degrees. Half-day of morning or afternoon sun. Overwinters well without pruning.
