Walking Stick Bamboo


Qiongzhuea tumidissinoda, some say, Chimonobambusa tumidissinoda

From Western China

This is a rare bamboo. After numerous failures we have built up some numbers. Not so difficult after all.

Sought out for its delicious shoots. Preferred for use as walking sticks all over China and for export, hard to find nowdays. It makes a special container plant, with its interesting culms and gentle foliage.

How fast will it grow?

Growth rate will depend a lot on climate, food and water. Small plants are slow to get going, enjoy the wait.
