Large 12 Litre Bamboo Pseudosasa Japonica 120cm: This is one of the most widespread and common Bamboo in the country and easily recognisable, probably in many of the gardens surrounding your home. Although an outdoor Bamboo it can if you desire be grown indoors, however it is not what we would personally recommend. The long green leaves have a size range of between 12cm and 30cm by approximately 7cm wide, much larger than the leaves of other similar hardy Bamboo. Fully winter hardy to -25 so a good choice for the colder areas of the uk. Pseudosasa Japonica or Arrow Bamboo is an extremely tough and versatile plant, it can be planted in shade right through to full sun in a south facing garden and unlike some other Bamboo is extremely tolerant of wind, it makes a good choice for positions in the garden where most other plants have failed.
