This is the famous Blue Bamboo and one of our most beautiful clumping bamboos. It comes from the lower elevations of the Himalayas in Nepal, Sikkim, and Bhutan and was formerly called Arundinaria falcata or Drepanostachyum falcatum. The new culms are blue sometimes with a hint of red or purple, aging to a light golden color. Not for sunny locations or hot southern climates.
