What you get

Hibanobambusa tranquillans Shiroshima is one of the best variegated bamboos with leaves that are large, pointed and brightly variegated green and cream and has dense pale green culms.
Planting and Care
Plant with the addition of some organic matter and water in well. Do not let the plant dry out in the first six months, and after this if it's in the ground it should look after itself. Pots of bamboo will continue to need watering. The best food a bamboo can have is its own dead leaves and culm sheaths so leave them to mulch the base of the plant.
Shiroshima is best grown in full sun or semi shade, in a sheltered position out of cold winds. If growing in a sunny site try and give it afternoon shade.
Any reasonable soil is ok, add organic matter to help the bamboo establish.
Height and Spread
This Bamboo can reach 10ft/4m in height, it is clump forming and should spread about 1-3m in ten years.
