Will survive occasional temperatures to 15oF. A choice selection with purple and purple-green new shoots, covered at first with a wonderful powdery icing. With its plenitude of arching branches and fine leaves it makes a fine specimen bamboo reaching 18' in happy garden conditions. Keep it mostly in the shade.

The words "refined elegance" come to mind when you grow Borinda angustissima. The tight deer resistant clumps of 1" canes (when mature) can eventually reach 15' tall and are adorned with airy, tiny green leaves highlighted by dark purple sheaths...simply delightful. Borinda angustissima was accessioned in 1993 by Dr. Jim Waddick in China's Northern Sichuan Province near Huang Long Si. Our plants have survived our oppressively humid 107 degree F highs and lows of 15 degrees F with no ill effects. Borinda angustissima is very slow to establish, but really starts to take off in its third year.
