Variegated Malay Dwarf

Bambusa heterostachya variegated

Sold Out

Variegated Malay Dwarf is the perfect hedging plant or small bamboo for gardeners who want a bamboo that won't take over the garden. It's also perfect for topiary and pot culture making it my number one pick for an ornamental all rounder. The lovely feathery striped leaves are dense and held on thornless branches making it a popular hedge for childcare centers. Fast growing it makes a great neighbor or road barrier.


Growing Conditions Malay dwarf bamboo needs little care and will reach a mature height of 3 to 4 m despite neglect and poor growing conditions. However, the plants look best and live longer when given regular watering, feeding and pruning. Can withstand light frost. Also suitable to pot culture and looks great as a topiary plant.
