Our most sought after Sasa, this species is grown for leaves that wither at the margins in fall, giving it a very unusual look of dark green leaves with white edges. For the most striking look, it is best used as a groundcover in a shady area. It is fine for full sun here in the Pacific Northwest. Sasa veitchii will grow to between 3 and 5 feet when left alone, but it can be kept shorter by cutting it to the ground after its spring flush of growth. For a taller plant, cut Sasa veitchii to the ground very early in the spring before new growth starts. It should be evergreen, with the whitish margins to Zone 7.
