Borinda albocerea

This exciting new bamboo from Yunnan has new culms coated with a beautiful bluish wax. As the culms turn yellow as they age and the wax wears off. We are hopeful that it will prove hardier than so far reported. This is one bamboo with a species name that is  descriptive of the plant: from the Latin albo, meaning white, and cereus for wax, describing the white waxy coating on the new culms. Very similar to B. papyrifera, but smaller.
