Much like the species, above, except in size. Also, the culms sometimes develop a distinctive white, waxy coating. This selection has proven to be one of the most cold hardy bamboo species we have tested here. After being exposed to a temperature of -16° F, the leaves were killed, but the wood and many of the buds survived, so the culms leafed out, at least partially, in spring. Well suited for use as a hedge or screen. Note: Sizes over 3′ tall are not always available during the period from January to May, but are usually available at other times. 7′-9′ and larger sizes are not shippable by UPS.
