× Phyllosasa is a nothogenus (genus of hybrid origin) of Japanese bamboo in the grass family.[3][4]

It consists of a single nothospecies of bamboo, Phyllosasa tranquillans, native to woodland in southern Honshu in Japan.[5][6] It is considered to be a hybrid between Phillostachys nigra var. henonsis and Sasa veitchii f. tyugokensis.[6]

It is a spreading, clump-forming bamboo growing to 2.5 m (8 ft) tall, with very dark green leaves 25 cm (10 in) or more in length. The variegated cultivar 'Shiroshima' is found in cultivation.[7]
