Bambusa textilis 'Richard Waldron' Ladyfinger Bamboo

This species was originally distributed as a seedling of Bambusa edulis. Although bamboo seedlings do tend to vary significantly from the parent plant, this bamboo has turned out to be anything but a product of B.edulis. After years of field-growing amongst similar looking bamboo species, we've determined it to be a dwarf form of Bambusa textilis. Culm sheath comparison (with B.textilis) has verified this.
A bamboo collector once brought a small bamboo to us to ID. He was calling his little unidentified bamboo 'Bambusa textilis New Dwarf". We planted it in a line of 'Richard Waldron' and, after a full year in our field, every bamboo in that line were identical.
Regardless of its name, the plant is a charming little bamboo. It is a small, delicate fountain of wispy canes and tiny leaves. It was originally named (common name) to honor the late Richard Waldron. We're keeping his name on our inventory. Some people have been calling it 'Ladyfinger Bamboo' so we'll include that too on our tags.
