Comments: One of the hardiest bamboos for the Northern gardener. First to send up shoots in springtime. Tall, sturdy culms (shoots) are a rich green and hollow inside. This bamboo grows into a dense grove or screen perfect to create a private area in your landscape. Maintains dark emerald green appearance even in the harshest winters. Favorite diet of the giant panda. Fairly new variety of hardy bamboo with new culms that start out a rusty red in color. Hardy and vigorous bamboo ideal for screening or hedging in the landscape.
