A stunning bamboo that grows erect and tall with dense branching and small leaves. Branches to the ground so it must be groomed annually if you want to show off the lower culms. Good hardiness for a tropical bamboo - has shown no damage at a sustained temperature of 24 degrees F.
Performed well in the recent Florida hurricanes.
