Phyllostachys Nuda Nude Sheath Bamboo

Maya Gardens, Inc.


This is the most cold hardy of all phyllostachys bamboo,  surviving well below  zero, reportedly even as cold as -20°F with only some leaf loss.  This is the bamboo for all you Northerners!!  New culms emerge dark purple,  almost black.  Culms eventually fade to dark green.
