Bambusa oldhamii Hirose

Not officially identified as a cultivar of B.oldhamii. It certainly resembles oldhamii. Some people feel it's superior as a landscape specimen and for construction material. Very rare in the mainland of the United States. A timber bamboo, which was said to be brought to Hawaii from India. When first planted in Hawaii it grew to 6 in diameter with thick walls. The original five plants all seeded and died, producing only one seed that germinated. From that seed, this current strain, now grows to 5 in diameter. Some of the culm sections are oval but most are round. Very straight culms and reach 60'- 70' tall with thin, strong walls and long internodes. Min USDA zone 9a. Click to find your zone.
