SKU: BRA Category:


Native to the mountainous Yunnan province in China, this bamboo is similar to Borinda boliana with blue-green powdery canes, but an open clumper with larger blue green leaves. Powder fades as canes age and turn yellow. Reaches 20′ tall with 1′ diameter culms in the climate of origin. Culms are very straight with slight arching at top. Will grow in bright indirect light to half-day sun. Cold hardy to 0. USDA zone 8b through 9, not for hot climates with excessive humidity.

The name comes from the Latin; ‘Albo’ meaning ‘white’ and ‘cereus’ meaning wax, referring to the powdery coating on the young culms.
