Dendrocalamus sinicus - Dragon Bamboo *New

Described as the largest bamboo in the world (largest culm diameter). The species is most know for its almost grotesque, tortured-looking culms. The culms grow in a contorted, curving form that resemble an elephant's trunk. As the bamboo matures, each new shoot will emerge larger and develop into a twisting freak show that we all hope for. Translated (Chinese) stories and info about the Dai People's "King of all Bamboos" can be found by following this link: Dragon Bamboo.

Re-imported from Xishuangbanna, Nov/2012 into USDA quarantine. Finally, in March/2015, the species was released to us from USDA quarantine (the 2013 US government shutdown is largely to blame for the release delay). Availability is, of course, extremely limited. We have about ten 3 gallon plants ready for sale for 2017.
The single released specimen is now happily growing in our nursery field. It should be exciting to watch this species develop!
