Pseudosasa japonica ‘Metake’ / Arrow Bamboo

Pseudosasa japonica ‘Metake’ / Arrow Bamboo
Pseudosasa japonica ‘Metake’ is a tall and imposing bamboo that can quickly reach 4m. It is one of the most forgiving bamboos available, hugely tolerant of the sort of conditions that bamboos usually dislike. The leaves are long and strap-like. Although the slender canes are green, these are almost totally concealed by numerous biscuit coloured papery sheaths. The stems have a graceful arching habit, which provides a wide spreading canopy. Happy in full sun or partial shade not bad for exposed coastal gardens. Keep well watered in summer. Mature height 3.5 – 4m.
