Bambusa heterostachya variegated
Common Names: Malay Dwarf Variegated
Malay Dwarf Variegated is the most popular choice as a hedging plant, as it is able to be hedged to a desirable size, or left to grow to its full height then square off the sides. Because of the soft foliage and lateral branches Malay Dwarf Variegated is a popular choice for child care centres and schools. Planted strategically and once grown to a decent height tunnels can be cut amongst them creating a wonderful environment for children to play in. Can also be used as a low screen, and is popular as a dust and noise barrier along roads.
