The article discusses the difficulty of identifying Sasa veitchii "Minor," a form of dwarf, withered-edge bamboo from the genus Sasa found in Japan. Sasaella ramosa and Sasa hayatae are two of the dwarf bamboos commonly mistaken as Sasa veitchii "Minor" because of their pubescent-filled lower leaf surfaces and withered leaf edges. But unlike the latter, their leaf edges are narrowly-colored and usually dries up later in the fall. Both are also resistant to mites and Sasa hayatae is sturdier than Sasa veitchii "Minor."
