Eventual Plant Size


Pseudosassa metake (japonica) is a remarkable, exotic looking bamboo forming an upright thicket of beautiful olive-green canes which mature to pale cream-gold. The elegant narrow leaves are rich dark-green with silver-grey undersides and a yellow midrib. This is a speedy grower and will establish quickly creating a wonderful effect.

We recommend using bamboo root barrier when planting Pseudosasa. A must have in an exotic garden and for bamboo lovers. Will appreciate fertile well-drained soil in a light location our of severe winds.

  • Position:Full sun to full shade fairly tolerant of coastal winds
  • Soil:All soils, but avoid waterlogged areas very dry soils will need extra watering.
  • Eventual Size:Up to 5 metres, but can be pruned
