Thamnocalamus spathiflorus 'Nyalam'

Max/Avg Height (ft.): 15, 8 (?)

Diameter: 0.5 inch

Hardiness: 15º F

USDA Zones: 8-9, Not recommended for climates with a lot of intense heat or high summer humidity (including most of the southern USA)

This bamboo was collected in Nyalam, Tibet in 1985 at about 3600m, so it should be pretty hardy. So far it has grown to about 7 or 8 feet tall in Great Britain and here at Bamboo Garden. It has larger leaves than most other Asian Thamnocalamus. According to Paul Whittaker in Hardy Bamboos: Taming the Dragon, it is more upright than the species and the culms are tinted a nice cherry red. There is a white ring under the node. New shoots are pastel blue and green.
