This very beautiful vining bamboo from the mountains of Peru was collected near the ancient Incan city of Machu Picchu, draping down a cliff side. An extremely rare plant, it is one of the most delicate in texture, with long slender culms and branches, and very small delicate leaves. Although rather tender, it is more hardy than the beautiful Mexican bamboo, Chusquea coronalis.
