Qiongzhuea tumidissinoda, some say, Chimonobambusa tumidissinoda
(alias; Big Node Bamboo).
From Western China
This is a rare bamboo. After numerous failures we have built up some numbers. Not so difficult after all.
Can grow to 3 metres tall with culms 1 cm, diameter. It likes humidity, good drainage and a pH of around 6. Cold winters? No problemo –20°C.
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?
