Malay Dwarf Variegated (Bambusa heterostachya variegata) is a hedging clumping bamboo that grows to roughly 3-4mtrs in height when fully grown. It grows very differently from traditional bamboo, with a very bushy, tufting habit with its foliage and does not naturally show the culms. Malay Dwarf Variegated has quite pretty, small white and green striped leaves and creates a feature hedge. It is extremely dense - so much so that we made our Bamboo Maze out of it! Malay Dwarf Variegated is an extremely fast growing, hardy bamboo, and can achieve a privacy hedge in under 18 months! Provided you follow our Bamboo Planting Guide with soil preparation and care.
