Chusquea culeou 'Vilches Alto' (picture left) In 2008 Ned Jaquith send me some Chusquea seeds that were collected from the wild by Mike Remmick in Vilches Alto, Chile (central Chile, high elevation). Two seedlings survived for a long time in a pot but they didn’t look very healthy. I planted one of them out and it recovered, surviving some not cold winters. Now this wonderful bamboo with purple culms, even in the shade, attracts attention of many visitors. I had lost the collecting information about this seedling but now, thanks to Noah Bell, I have got it back and even have a name.  Hardy between 12 and 15°C.

It is strange that none of the leaves of Aulonemia ulei, Chusquea ibiramae and the following 3 species are showing any tessellation in the leaves. Normally this is needed to survive freezing temperatures. But they are able to survive temperatures below zero, at least till - 8°C. And Aulonemia ulei BBM20.BR11 even till - 14°CIn the future we will know more about their hardiness.

Fargesia nivalis (picture left) The bamboo with the name 'Yushania velutina' seems to belong to the Fargesia group. This bamboo with its most delicate leaves is not very hardy.  In a moderate winter it sheds first its leaves. In a colder winter it can freeze back but it will usually recover.

Phyllostachys kwangsiensis 'Bokrijk'  (picture above right) This hardy, very vigorous species with hairy culms (like Phyll. edulis) started flowering arround 2010 in most of the places. This plant survived flowering in the Botanical garden of Bokrijk in Belgium and will be free of flowering for at least 60 years. This bamboo is the best clone for the middle of Europe to invest in the future if biomass is your item.
There is another clone in Belgium (Koen) that did not flower untill now and plants produced out of this line are not certain to have such a long future. Mixing up these two is risky and if flowering takes place it is surely not the "Bokrijk".
If this bamboo ever goes in vitro, the growth properties are no longer certain.

Height 6-12 m.+  sun till half shadow,  hardy between -20/-23°C   5 liter  € 85
