Info

(syn: Yushania boliana) We have longed for hardy clumping bamboo of Sasquatch proportions, and thanks to Jackie Heinricher at Boo-Shoot Gardens, we have it. Our 3-year-old clumps of the deer-resistant Borinda boliana have already reached 10' tall, with 0.5-1" diameter arching blue-green culms. Mature plants should top out at 50' tall, so don't plant these under power lines or airline flight paths. Our plants were killed to the ground at 9 degrees F, despite prior information to the contrary. Conversely, they have thrived through 3 consecutive weeks of above 100 degrees F heat and humidity in full sun. We are ecstatic about this new bamboo...blue marlin-sized fishing poles, biomass fuel potential, and a quick way to hide your untidy neighbors!
