This bamboo has recently been named Chusquea gigantea by French botanist Jean Pierre Demoly. It is very unlike the other Chusquea: though technically a clumping bamboo, C. gigantea forms a slowly spreading grove of very upright culms, somewhat like a Phyllostachys. It is one of the hardiest Chusqueas in cultivation. The photo was taken at Carwinion in Cornwall, England near Falmouth.
