Shibataea kumasaca / Ruscus Bamboo, Dwarf Bamboo
- Has dense foliage and an excellent tall groundcover or short hedge. It tends to grow taller in cooler climates providing a 6'-8' screen or hedge, but can be trimmed down to a 6' ground cover. Especially beautiful when trimmed as a short hedge. Even though a running bamboo, it can be kept in a small space making it useful in a garden where space is limited.
