Bambusa multiplex ‘Midori Green’ is very similar to Alphonse Karr but it has a mix of light green canes with dark green stripes and yellow canes with green stripes. The contrast in the cane colors is attractive. You can leave it dense for a thick screen or trim the lower branches to expose the canes.
