One of the most cold-resistant in the Bambusa family. Silver grey leaves on the lower surface. Hanging stem extremities. The younger sprouts are born in the Summer, finish their growth in Autumn, and develop their branches in Spring. Although this bamboo and its relatives Alphonse Karr and Golden Goddess, can in very good conditions reach considerable heights, in temperate climates they very rarely reach 3mts.
Even though it has a -9ºC resistance, it should be planted in sheltered areas.
The density of its foliage makes a great curtain. Tropical bamboo with good resistance to cold weather.
