Malay Pygmy Bamboo,
I first saw this plant growing indoors, looking lovely. It loves water. Soft, long foliage. A small, non-invasive bamboo lookalike.
Grow it next to your waterfall. Plant it along a border for a soft line of greenery. Hangs over the side of containers. Lushly.
This is not bamboo but a grass. We include it here because it has a clumping habit and there is no Clumping bamboo for this landscaping niche, only Runners. A versatile plant with very fine and long, bright green leaves. Forms a dense mound of foliage to 400 mm high.
Needs constant moisture but can handle sun or shade. Drying out can be the end of it. Try indoors, I did. In the office on your desk.
So what’s it cost?
