The large leaves on the Sasa palmata, up to 14″ x 2-4″, adds a tropical look to any garden. This fast growing dwarf is at home in the under story of larger plants and trees. In its native habitat of Japan, Korea and Russia it can usually be found growing in woodlands. It is fast growing, up to 10′. Its culms turn black with age, adding even more interest to this bamboo. Looks beautiful if it is used as a container planting for your deck or patio, around a hot tub, courtyard or entry way.
