This is one of our newer imports that cleared USDA quarantine in April/2012.
Species name is in question but the genus is accurate. It is not to be confused with Dendrocalamus/Bambusa variostriata, which grows much larger.
Develops into a nice garden bamboo with unusual fernlike leaves. Makes a great privacy screen or small feature.
It has a very tight clumping and erect growth habit, ;od for areas with limited space.
Grows to 12' tall. Min temp 28 degrees F.
