Chinese Goddess (Bambusa multiplex cv Riviereorum)

$38.00

Chinese Goddess Bamboo (Bambusa multiplex cv Riviereorum) is a delicate and striking bamboo with very small leaves on slender culms. Like most bamboos, it will grow in a range of conditions.

A dwarf variety with very tiny fernlike leaves and golden culms if exposed to full sunlight. This delicate, fairly erect solid-culmed ornamental also does well as a potted plant or a bonsai specimen. A great small garden or house plant. Can be easily hedged to any shape desired.

Frost tolerant. Chinese Goddess is also more shade tolerant than most bamboos.
