A genus of tropical running Chinese bamboos similar to Semiarundinaria except the culm sheaths promptly fall off. Good container plant. Shoots in the spring.
(SITA) A spectacular variegated form of tootsik that has white leaves with green stripes and darker, olive green culms. The contrast between light-colored leaves and dark canes is quite striking. Growing 20-25' tall with 1½" diameter culms, this plant is unique in being so brightly variegated and also tall. This plant prefers morning sun and afternoon shade, and it spreads slowly in shade, almost like a clumper. Mite resistant. Shoots in spring.
