Additional Information About Kuma Zasa Bamboo


Kuma-Zasa has some of if not the most eye-catching foliage of any bamboo. Leaves up to 10 inches long and about 2 inches wide are dark green however turn to a bold, creamy white around the margins in fall and the coloration persist through winter. Mature culms (canes) are purplish green to green. It prefers shade and can handle a lot of moisture in the soil. Morning sun is okay.

Kuma-Zasa is a running bamboo, which means it spreads. Bamboo can be easily controlled in a small area by root pruning, a Bamboo Root Barrier or growing plants in above- or below-ground containers.

Gardener Direct also carries Bamboo fertilizer and planting soil containing Biochar, a highly porous material that allows for long term water and nutrient holding capabilities.
