Dendrocalamus membranaceus

A 50' tall clumping bamboo from Burma with straight culms. It develops 4" diameter canes that are bright green with green leaves. Can tolerate some cold to 34 F. It is ideally grown in full sun in warm zones with high humidity. A beautiful lowlands species noted for its very smooth straight erect lower branch-free culms followed by fine light green leaves. Green culms are white powder covered when young giving a misty blue appearance. Its pale golden shoots are purple leaf tipped and blue tinged with powder. Its slightly bitter edible shoots are prized and it produces superior timber. Highly recommended.
