Otatea glauca - Mayan Silver Bamboo

New cultivar. Has hollow culms unlike the other Otateas. New culms are covered in a waxy white powder giving it a silver look. Leaves are weeping and narrow.
After multiple attempts, it does not survive in South Florida more than 1.5 years. Although bamboos of the genus Otatea originate in an arid climate, some of the species in that genus adapt to the humid south Florida conditions. Otatea glauca, sadly, does not. We are leaving this information here for reference but the species will not be available from Tropical Bamboo Nursery.
Should grow to 18' tall, with 1/2" diameter culms in Florida. Minimum temp, 25 degrees F - (maybe lower). Min USDA zone: 9a. Click to find your zone.
