Bambusa ventricosa ‘kimmei’
Striated Buddha Belly Bamboo.
A lovely plant that we grow specifically for use in containers.
An unusual form of Buddha Belly, this cultivar has yellow and green striped canes with pinstriping on the leaves. Bellies reliably in pots but not in the ground.
If you want a plant that bellies reliably in the ground at lower elevations, please see Bambusa wamin – Lumpy Noodle or Bambusa wamin striata – Striped Lumpy Noodle.
