Semiarundinaria fastuosa, common names Narihira bamboo, Narihira cane, and Narihiradake,[2][3] is a species of flowering plant in the grass family Poaceae, native to Japan. Growing to 7 m (23 ft) tall by 2 m (7 ft) broad, it is a vigorous, evergreen bamboo with dark green cylindrical canes and dense tufts of lanceolate, glossy green leaves, up to 20 cm (8 in) long.[4][5]

In cultivation it is useful as an architectural plant or screen. It has gained the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit.[6]

The specific epithet fastuosa is Latin for "proud".[7]
