Beautiful miniature bamboo sighting in Midtown Sacramento...
I always love discovering bamboo used correctly and where it shows off beautifully. Today, I was walking along K Street, somewhere near 24th Street in Midtown Sacramento, and stumbled upon some Plieoblastus viridistriatus 'Chrysophyllus', a 3 foot miniature bamboo that is a pretty aggressive runner (not suggested for planting in the open ground, but great in a patio container). Here is 'Chrysophyllus' planted in an enclosed planter in front of a business. Perfect spot for this type of bamboo.
Since it is now spring, the fresh new leaves, with its bright lime-yellow coloring, are really shining. Always a nice thing to see...
