Nepalese Blue Bamboo

Botanical Name: Himalayacalamus porcatus

Description: Native to the mountainous highlands of Nepal, this bamboo is very hardy. It prefers the morning sun but stills make a great privacy screen between houses. The blue comes from having blue grey-tinted culms (canes). It has very slight finger-sized culms with a slightly weeping habit. Very delicate, perfect for a courtyard or even a screen or hedge. It can be planted in pots or planters to make a superb specimen indoors and outdoors.
