Need some help with ID and planting

gardening_fool(9b San Juan Capistrano)May 16, 2007

Someone gave me these and I want to plant in the correct area. What type if possible and if they are clumping or running and also approx height when mature.

First picture the Plastic pot says on a piece of tape " Karr " on other side tape says "sasa running ", Second picture is a varigated leaf.Third picture the leafs are wider and longer than other bamboo I've seen. I know this is not much to go on and pictures are not so great. But some idea or good guess will help me! Thanks, Melissa

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

i believe that they are all runners, #1 & #3 may be the same species, and that appears to be indocalamus tesselatus, #3 surely is the i tess, #1 could be a sasa but looks also like i tess - hard to tell for sure from those pics

variegated one could be hibanobambusa tranquillans 'shiroshima', possibly others but a likely suspect due to the long leaves/branch structure
