(syn: Bambusa glaucescens 'Fernleaf') This compact cultivar of the clumping Bamboo multiplex usually reaches 9-10', although reports exist of 20' heights in perfect conditions. The 0.5" wide, upright green canes are composed of culms every 4-6". From these culms, tufts of small stems emerge bearing densely packed, small green leaves. Because of its thick nature, Bambusa multiplex 'Fernleaf' is highly prized as a short, thick, deer-resistant hedge. When temperatures drop below 6 degrees F, the plants will probably defoliate and the canes will die to the ground at 0 degrees F. Our plants have reliably resprouted from 0 degrees several times over the last 20 years.
