This one is root hardy to Zone 6b w/o any special help.
It grows outside our protected micro-climate and has come back strong for 3 Springs now.

Beautiful color and much less invasive than most Dwarf Runners.

A very nice colored bamboo- lime green to yellow green with striped leaves. Is a relatively non-invasive runner only about 3' tall and pretty easy. Tends to loose all its leaves in the winter, but comes back stronger each spring. You can even mow this bamboo and it will come back.
