A short, and highly entertaining bamboo with its dramatically swollen internodes. “Lumps” better closer to the ocean; mostly recommended below 500 ft elevation. For an accent plant we think it looks best with judicious pruning and thinning.
2”+ diameter canes. To about 20 feet in lower elevations. We trim ours shorter.
Also can be used as hedge or windbreak plant. Extremely durable. Has survived high winds and tsunami inundations without missing a beat.
We do two versions of this plant……an all green one and one that has yellow and green striped canes.
