Borinda sp. Willow (KR5288)

Height: 12-14? feet,
Diameter: 3/4 inch inch
Hardiness: 15F
Recommended for USDA zone 8b through 9, not for climates with high heat and humidity (southeastern states).

This Borinda has a very weepy habit, it appears more wide than it is tall. The new culms with sparse leaves are mostly upright, but the following year, as they produce more foliage, arch outward, nearly touching the ground. The foliage is moderate size, and matte green, much like B. macclureana; The two species seem to be closely related.  It is a rare bamboo, collected be Keith Rushford from the mountainous region of Yunnan, China.
