     A fast growing, attractive bamboo with white powdery skin. It performs well in desert climates.  It is a massive, strong growing timber bamboo here on the West Coast.  Although a nigra, the distinctive looking culms are rough to the touch and a whitish green in color.  It is the species that Phyllostachys nigra is thought to have originated from.  This bamboo is highly recommended for people who wish for a massive, hardy bamboo with good wood quality.
