Punting Pole Bamboo

Botanical Name: Bambusa pervariabilis

Description: Punting pole bamboo is Native to Southern China, Commonly known as, all green form of pervariabilis. Has the same dense clump pattern, branching, and leaf size as the yellow-culmed as the Pervariabilis Viridistriata yellow striated. The colours of this bamboo change with age. They first start out as beautiful green culms marked with cream stripes on the nodes. They then turn a golden colour over time. The shoots have a purple tinge with light green stripes. This bamboo has thick walled culms and are often used for farm tool handles in China. Due to their strength, the poles can also be used for fishing rods, light pole structures and barge poles (just to name a few uses).
