Literally, its name means large leaves. This new import certainly lives up to its name with extremely wide and long leaves. Imported from Yunnan, China in 2012 and released to us by the USDA in early 2013.
We are currently test-growing in our fields. It should be available in limited quantities by the end of 2013.
Will grow to at least 50' tall with 3" - 4" diameter culms. Click to find your zone.
