Brighten Shady Spots Chartreuse is an ideal color for creating drama in shady spots. Plants such as Japanese forestgrass, 'Gold Heart' bleeding heart, creeping Jenny, or the variegated bamboo shown here act like a ray of sunshine. Also consider evergreens with golden foliage to enliven areas that experience a lot of gray skies in winter.
Shiroshima Bamboo:The strikingly attractive leaves are variegated in cream and green with stunning color that persists throughout the year. It is the best tall variegated bamboo, having larger leaves than other variegated forms, resulting in a distinctive and bold effect. Best sited with an eastern or protected exposure to keep the foliage colorful. Useful as a massed specimen, keeping in mind that it can spread over time.
