Dendrocalamus minor var. amoenus is a beautiful feature bamboo with a tropical feel. It has large pendulous glossy green leaves on a tight non-evasive clump. There are many white powder covered lime-green culms with dark green striations that arch at the top.
Our personal favourite bamboo, White ghost is used mainly as a garden feature plant or an informal hedge. White Ghost is a fast grower and will produce a large amount of culms during its growing season to form a tight clump. If not maintained this will take up a reasonable amount of space in a small garden. Native to lower hills in the tropics of Guangxi, China, it grows in the plains and along watersides. Although it is exceptionally drought and frost tolerant, it performs best in hot humid conditions where the soil is constantly moist.
