     An extremely handsome clumping bamboo that arches gracefully at the tops of its 30-40 feet tall with its 2" inches wide culms. We have clients who keep these trimmed to 15 feet tall for a nice beautiful hedge to provide them with privacy screen from their neighbor.

 

The thin-walled culms, without branches on the lower half, provide for long straight culms of medium-wall thickness that are used for weaving and furniture. Culm growth occurs in summer with new culms having a light bluish cast before maturing to a pale green.  This is an excellent bamboo for use in a specimen planting or planted as a tall  hedge.

 

Elegant, with a classic form, this bamboo can tolerates heat, wind, cold, sun, rain and never has a bad hair day.

 

Canes/culms split beautifully and are traditionally used for weaving and crafts.  Makes elegant kadomatsu and curtain/towel rods.
