Chusquea gigantea  

Height:  24 feet
Diameter: 1.5 inch
Hardiness:  5 F

This bamboo has recently been named Chusquea gigantea by French botanist Jean Pierre Demoly. It is very unlike the other Chusquea: though technically a clumping bamboo, C. gigantea forms a slowly spreading grove of very upright culms, somewhat like a Phyllostachys. It is one of the hardiest Chusqueas in cultivation.
