Bambusa ventricose var. kimmei
Common Names: Kimmei
Kimmei grows rapidly even in harsh growing conditions, which like its relative, Buddha’s Belly Bamboo, is perfect for growing in containers or planted out to create a living screen in an area that receives little attention. Kimmei has quite an open form and when the lower branches are removed creates a spectacular stand of golden striated culms with bushy foliage atop. Also used for erosion control.
