Phyllostachys glauca 'Yunzhu'
(Leopard Bamboo)

Native to the northern provinces of China, this bamboo is known for it's brown spots and blotches on it's culms. Also known as 'Leopard Bamboo', the spotting resembles that of a Leopard. In it's native habitat, 'Yunzhu' is a robust species growing in alkaline soils and withstanding dry conditions. New culms emerge solid green. As the culms age, they develop the spotting characteristics. New spots continually form, growing on top of existing old spots. A truly remarkeable and unique ornamental bamboo.
