What you get

You will receive a 5ltr pot, with the bamboo standing 4ft tall with 5-6 culms.


This is a delightful form of the species that has lots of thin golden culms that can turn a dusky pink or red when grown in full sun. Kimmei is shorter than the species, reaching 3.5m at most -but usually shorter than this. The leaves are small and held on short stems close to the culm. The culms have a green stripe above each branch. This is a great all rounder as it is good in full sun or semi shade and it has a vertical habit and bushy foliage.

Planting and care

Kimmei is best grown in sun or semi shade and in moist or dry soil with the addition of organic matter. It is a very reliable garden plant. If planting in more direct sun try and give it afternoon shade. Water in well and do not let it dry out in the first six months. After this, if in the ground it should look after itself. The best food a Bamboo can have is its own dead leaves and culm sheaths, so leave these to mulch the base of the plant.


Any reasonable soil is ok, add organic matter to help the bamboo establish.

Container growing

Semiarundinaria kimmei is well suited to growing in a pot, where it remains very upright in habit. Always use a good loam based compost, don't let it dry out and feed regularly.
