Phyllostachys edulis ("Moso")
( Syn. Phyllostachys heterocycla f. pubescens )
Capable of reaching spectacular proportions in its native habitat but slow to develop under UK conditions unless grown in fertile soil in the warmer districts where the height and diameter of its culms are highly impressive.
Upright blue- green culms and pale green foliage.
Has tolerated -20C.
Slow to establish and mainly a collectors' plant with several better alternatives for all but the most favourable areas. (Please see notes on "Giant Timber Bamboos" )
Very slow to propagate and disappointing in pots.
No longer stocked.
