Another Chusquea new to the U.S., growing about 25′ tall and 1¾” inches in diameter with exceptionally long branches at 3-4½ feet. This plant is very big with an airy look, a delightful specimen plant but too open for screening. Shoots are pink-red and grow FAST! Culms stay wrapped in their sheaths for a longer time for an interesting look. Works well against a clear backdrop or standalone. Open clumper that “looks” like a runner!
Fun fact: Unlike most other bamboo/grass species, Chusquea genus canes are SOLID all the way through!
