A smaller version of the popular ‘Mexican Weeping’ variety. This is a gracefully weeping clumping bamboo that grows to about 3′. Has many small culms and small narrow leaves. Distinctive feathery ‘fountain’ look that ‘Mexican Weeping’ is known for. ‘Chica’ makes an excellent container specimen due to its diminutive size and distinctive form. This species enjoys light shade/partial sun, and requires protection from the wind, making it a lovely choice for a patio or enclosed yard.
