Pleioblastus distichus

Maximum height: 2 ft.
Maximum diameter: 1/8 in.
Minimum temperature: -5ºF
(The roots are at least 10ºF more hardy.)

Species in the Pleioblastus genus are usually dug in the early spring. Orders for species in this genus should be placed before April.

I call this one "instant lawn." Spreads faster than most large bamboo. Can be maintained at only 2" tall by a once a year mowing. However, it will not handle foot traffic. For an area that you don't like mowing and has little to no foot traffic this is perfect. Also does well in pots indoors and out. Its delicate appearance has earned it the name "fern-leaf bamboo."
