The long, narrow foliage on the Pleioblastus simonii grows off of very straight culms. Most leaves are green, but an occasional leaf can be variegated green and white. It is a medium sized bamboo, growing to about 20′. It is a great choice for erosion control or as wind break in a highly windy area, especially along coastal areas as it will take salt air.
