Sasa Veitchii is an attractive evergreen dwarf bamboo tree with compact darkly mottled purple-green culms and large dark green leaves. An unusual feature of this bamboo plant is that the fresh green leaves produced in spring develop a distinctive cream edge which remains throughout the winter, giving it a pseudo-variegated appearance.
Height: up to 1m
Uses: An aggressive vigorous spreading bamboo that provides excellent ground cover. Useful for stabilising banks. An interesting landscaping plant which develops an unusual variegated look in winter as an added bonus.
