Gigantochloa lutriostriata is a great smaller bamboo for either screening or as a smaller garden feature with nice large tropical looking leaves with a cream stiation.
It is very tight clumping at the base and very bushy at the top, forming a mushroom type shape. It is great for creating shade for underplanting or as a screen to block out 2-3 mtrs above the fence line.
Lipistick bamboo gets its name from the pink colouring of the new shoots, which are also edible!
