"Akebono-suji-yadake" blongs to Poaceae (the Grass family). It is an evergreen bumboo that is a horticultural variety of the "Arrow bamboo", which is distributed in Honshu, Shikoku, and Kyushu in Japan. The rod grows straight and grows 3 to 5 m high. It is characterized by the faint virescent white spots and green stripes on the new leaves that appear in early spring. Virescent spots, which appear as white or yellow blotches when new shoots grow and change to green as the leaves grow, are genetically called virescence (green change), and are considered a mutation that does not keep pace with leaf elongation due to slow development of chloroplasts.
