The Moon Bay Heavenly Bamboo is a low-maintenance evergreen shrub that has bright yellow-green foliage in spring and spectacular red and orange colors in fall. It is evergreen in mild regions and the fall color lasts all winter. it has sprays of white flowers in spring, followed by red berries that last all winter, and that are loved by birds. It grows to just 3 tall and as much around, and it has more upward-pointing leaves than usual, so it is compact and dense without any clipping. It is ideal for foundation planting around your home, or for planting in garden beds. It also makes a perfect container plant, or use it to fill planter boxes. It can also be planted as a low hedge or to edge large beds, by spacing plants 2 feet apart in a row.

  • Upward pointing leaves create a dense, bushy plant
  • Spring growth is bright yellow-green
  • Spectacular fall colors of red and orange
  • Dense, rounded clumps with no clipping
  • Ideal foundation or container plant

The Moon Bay Heavenly Bamboo will grow well in full sun or partial shade, and even grows in deep shade, although it will not color as well in fall without some sun. It will grow in most soils, and prefers plenty of organic material added at planting time, and as a mulch. Keep it well watered while young, and water during hot spells as well. This plant is deciduous in areas where temperatures fall below 10 degrees, but it is winter-hardy to minus 10 degrees. It has no pests or diseases and is usually not eaten by deer. For a sturdy low-maintenance plant that is always neat and trim, this one takes some beating.
