H6. Ground Cover Bamboo

Rating ( vote)

“Dwarf Bamboo”  or Pleioblastus Distichus, this is one of the smallest bamboos.  Sometimes even used as turf grass.  The most noticeable characteristic of this bamboo is the very tough and erect leaf texture.  The leaves fan out in groups of 5 or so, making them look very much like little palm or fern leaves with dark green color.  Can grow up to two feet tall.
