Pleioblastus pygmaeus

Bamboo, Dwarf

Pygmy bamboo is one of the smallest bamboos, and its leaves are also very small. It is one of the best of the dwarf bamboos for use as a bonsai. This variety has minute hairs, noticeable only upon very close inspection, on the leaf sheaths and also on the leaves. Vigorous, spreading underground rhizomes produce upright woody stems with grassy-green culms. Great in Asian landscapes or as a large informal hedge. Growing inside a barrier or container is recommended. Commonly used as a groundcover in Japanese gardens, often clipped to a height of only a few inches.
