Hibanobambusa Tranquillans 'Shiroshima' Bamboo
The Shiroshima has a very large leaf with variegated green and cream/white colors. It is probably a hybrid/cross between a Phyllostachys and Sasa. Although it prefers shade, when it is grown in a full sun location the edges of the leaves develop a slight purple to pink coloration. Shiroshima in its native habitat is an under story plant, growing in shadier locations. However, we grow ours in a full sun location and have nothing but great results with it.
