Red Cane Bamboo

Botanical Name: Semiarundinaria yashadake kimmei

Description: Red Cane bamboo is native to Japan and is a running type of bamboo. Best planted in full sun, but this beautiful bamboo’s main feature is that the canes turn a reddish colour in Autumn when the temperatures cool. It has large dark green leaves, occasionally having a white stripe. It is a prolific shooter and a vigorous runner creating a very thick growth. This can create a vast and dense privacy screen. This bamboo is a robust runner, and you need to control how far it reaches. If you have a large area to fill, it can be held its growth with root barriers, or many farmers use running bamboo to soak up boggy wet areas.
