A rare, new introduction. Culms are straight and erect. Stunningly beautiful and distinctly identifiable new shoots are powder-blue with copper-colored culm sheaths. In Thailand, used as a flavor-adding vessel for cooking sitcky rice. Also used by the Dai people of South China for cooking rice and for tea-brewing vessels.

Imported April/2011 into USDA quarantine and was expected to be available after the summer of 2013. After one full year of field testing, it has become obvious that it will be a spectacular but slow-developing bamboo in South Florida. We have no expectations of availability any time soon, if ever. There are currently three specimens growing in our fields but none of those are really thriving. They're alive and are sending up an occasional new shoot. None are in containers as every attempt to containerize has been unsuccessful. We will continue to experiment in an attempt to find what this species is lacking in our environment.
To be clear, we have NO expectations of ever having available plants of this species.
