This clump forming dwarf bamboo has green culms when they emerge which turn slowly to a red/purple colour and eventually to a light orange. It produces no shoots and is therefore not invasive.

Plant Care & Advice
When planting Bamboo's, use a sunken root barrier to prevent the Bamboo invading other areas of the garden with its runners. I would need to be watered regularly during dry periods! In spring, remove any weak, dead, damaged or spindly canes, cutting them to ground level with secateurs or loppers. To show off plants to their best, remove some of the foliage from the bottom of the canes. Cut them back with secateurs, pruning as close to the main cane as possible to leave a smooth finish.
