Straight culms that arch outward in typical Gigantochloa form with large leaves. New culms are striated beautifully cream/pink, then the striations fade to white. The culm sheaths also start as bright pink, then fade before they drop off. This color transition is a beautiful bonus to enjoy on every new shoot. Originally collected in Sumatra by Austrailian Len Muller.
