Gardening Uses This cold hardy bamboo species (tolerant to 0°F/-17.7°C) grows well both in shade and also in full sun. The culms are typically yellow-brown and it has palmfont-like leaves. Pseudosasa japonica does very well in containers and salty air near the ocean. Because it tends to be more shade tolerant than other bamboo species it is often used by gardeners as an understory to a tree-lined living fence.<ref name="Cape May Bamboo"/>
