This is a bamboo that does it all. Highly esteemed for its grace and beauty, it’s construction grade canes are thick walled, straight and strong. Lower nodes often solid.

Very compact and vertical with small leaves that create a cloud-like effect.

Canes can get to about 40 feet tall in rainy areas, shorter on the leeward sides. Pruning out the original, small canes will help it look its best..

Outstanding lumber, edible shoots.
