Catalog as of January 02, 2016


(Gramineae - grass family)
Bamboo. More than 150 species of evergreen, woody-stemmed grasses of temperate eastern Asia, especially Japan. Sasas are mostly small, fast-spreading species, often with relatively large, broad, ribbed leaves and arching culms.

kurilensis max ht 10' • max culm dia ¾" • min temp 0°F

nemagari-dake; chishima-zasa

edible, screen, part shade - sun
eastern Asia

One of the tallest of the Sasa species. Leaves may be up to 2" wide by 12" long. Grows wild farther north than any other bamboo, occurring naturally as far as 50° north latitude on Sakhalin Island. It is said that the edible shoots of this species are so popular in Japan that a license is required to collect them. Prefers partial shade, at least in warm climates. This species may do best in cool climates with moderate winters - apparently it does not reach its full potential size in warm areas.

up to 1' tall, cat # 8S7A1 $23.95 each.

Very popular as a garden subject both in its native Japan and here in the U.S. A vigorous spreader, Sasa veitchii makes a good groundcover.
