Hibanobambusa Tranquillans Shiroshima, or Bamboo Shiroshima inyo, is a beautiful hybrid bamboo featuring a striking variegation to its large leaves in a relatively short stature of 2.5 metres. This beautiful bamboo forms a lax clump of slender, erect stems with oblong, lance-shaped leaves of about 25 centimetres in length that are borne on slender, slowly spreading canes.
In Japanese, its Genus, Hibanobambusa, means “Bamboo Growing on Mount Hiba”. Native to that country, Bamboo Shiroshima inyo is a variety from the Family Poaceae. Combining the large leaves and the stunning variegated colouration, Bamboo Shiroshima portrays some of the brightest and most vibrant colours of any variegated bamboo. The Hibanobambusa Tranquillans Shiroshima variety of the Genus is smaller in stature than its original form making it an excellent medium sized bamboo that also exhibits a large leaf, fuller effect.
A versatile choice, the Hibanobambusa Tranquillans Shiroshima can grow from full sun, which it prefers, to partial shade in most any garden setting. It is also one of the few bamboos that can grow fairly well indoors in containers. With an ultimate height reaching 1.5-2.5 metres and an ultimate spread of 4-8 metres, this slow grower will reach its full growth in between 5-10 years.
Hardy to Zone H4 in the UK and Ireland, and a preference leaning toward full sun, aspects in order of preference would be south and then west facing. It can survive exposed or sheltered exposures. It likes a moist but well drained soil, and isn’t terribly picky on pH as long as it is near neutral. Soil types would include loam or clayey types that exhibit reasonable drainage and moderate fertility. In full sun exposures, try to ensure a soil which will stay damp in spring through the summer. The clump-forming roots can occasionally creep and become invasive if in warm and moist conditions with highly fertile soil and may require some restraining.
This very showy specimen keeps its boldly variegated colouration throughout the year. It has been known to tolerate temperatures to -20C, and is tolerant of trimming once established. If grown in containers, it will do well, as long as it receives adequate, regular watering.
If you’re looking for a medium sized choice for your hedge or as an evergreen screen with a unique architectural brilliance, Bamboo Shiroshima inyo will not disappoint. It would be a great choice for container planting placed on the patio or open space and then brought in for the winter to bring colour to your house throughout the winter.
