What you will recieve

Sasaella albostriata is a clump forming, nicely variegated bamboo of green and bright cream leaves. It grows to 1.2m and can spread 1-5m in ten years, creating broad drifts. Thin selectively in early spring for the best colour.
Planting and Care
Sasaella is best grown in sun or semi shade and plant with the addition of some organic matter and water in well. 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.
Sasaella is suited to growing in a pot, use a good loam based compost, don't let it dry out and feed regularly.
