"German Bamboo"
Dwarf form
 Give this Asian native a moist, but well drained soil. Needs a few hours a day of solar light. Fertilize periodically; in the spring use a fertilizer rich in nitrogen and potassium, to encourage the development of new vegetation and of flowerings. Selectively remove “culms” to keep this grass attractive and to encourage new shoots. Protect from Freezing.
Pogonatherum crinitum has long been used as a folk remedy for the treatment of many inflammatory diseases in Taiwan.
