2009's cold snap in Central Florida (low 20's) challenged many borderline plants and bamboos but this Ghost came through with flying colors and no leaf burn. Tripled in size the following spring/summer. Young, misty-blue culms turn golden with fine green stripes with age, lovely pendulous habit and a tight clumper: highly recommended.
