Dendrocalamus peculiaris

D-peculiaris-detail-copyD-peculiarisA beautiful plant with a challenging name.

It is a relatively new introduction from China where there are many beautiful bamboos to chose from; this one is primarily planted as an ornamental.  The timber is used for construction.

The current photo does not do it justice (we’re working on a better one). It will be 35-40 feet tall with nice sized canes (6 inches+), and with lush foliage.
