Borinda KR 7613
(originally listed as Borinda papyracea KR 7613 )
An outstanding new introduction with great potential.
Collected at 3200m in Caojian, Yunnan by Keith Rushforth and introduced via Ness Botanical Gardens.
A non-ruuning species with culms which are initially blue-grey and should reach a height 18ft.or more. (6m).
Very comparable with Borinda papyrifera and with equally well coloured canes.
Slightly arching habit and fairly small leaves.
Newly emerging culms have dark red culm sheaths contrasting with the blue grey of older stems.
Superb as a tall specimen plant. and can also be used for screening.
Appears fully hardy and was affected very little by the severe conditions of 2010.
