Jim Parker's giant bamboo in Hawaii. Huge and legendary. Species identity is in question. Very rare in the continental U.S.A., now being propagated at our nursery. Claims of 10” diameter, 120' tall culms in Kohala, Hawaii are exaggerated. This is, however, an extremely large-growing timber bamboo and massive 7" diameter 80' culms would not be unusual. NOTE: This bamboo is currently flowering gregariously, worldwide. We will no longer sell any of this species until, or unless, the species survives what will be a multi-year flowering event
