Planting and Flowering Information
Likes Moist, well drained soil and is Fully Hardy
An evergreen multi stemmed shrub with amazing foliage colour all year round.
Commonly called 'Heavenly Bamboo' because of its similarity to Bamboo with the added benefit of colour changing foliage. In spring new leaves emerge atop the plant in strong bronze / orange colour fading to green often keeping a hint of a red flush.
In autumn its leaves turn a fiery red and gold colour as the temperature cools and this remains for most of the winter until older leaves fade to green again.
In summer feather like plumes of white flowers are borne in July which are often followed by scarlet berries for the birds.
The vertical stems and many leaves swish in the breeze and are ideal to use as a screening plant which reduces road noise too.
