Arrow Bamboo

Botanical Name: Pseudosasa Japonica

Description: Native to Japan and Korea, this bamboo is sometimes known as the Japanese Arrow. It is a fast-growing running bamboo. Arrow bamboo does like the sun but also loves a good drink. It is best suited in locations with filtered sun. If planted in sunny areas, give it an excellent regular soaking. Arrow bamboo is one of our easiest bamboos to grow. It can survive in the sun, shade, withstand freezing temperatures, or thrive in salty coastal regions. It has thick foliage with leaves that are roughly 30cm long. The dense foliage and the tightly clustered culms make Arrow Bamboo ideal as a privacy hedge. Another benefit of this bamboo is that the canes are almost perfectly straight. The nodes are not as significant as other bamboo making the canes useful for things like plant stakes etc. Arrow can grow very dense and works very well for stabilising creek banks. It can also be grown in pots and makes a good screen.
