This stunning bamboo has a white waxy bloom that covers the new culms giving a beautiful blue glow. From the Latin word 'albo' meaning white, which best describes the distinguishable feature of this bamboo. Over time the culms lose the white glow and slowly ages to green and yellow.
Long slender leaves are held aloft on culms that grow fairly upright. A native plant from Yunnan, China, this bamboo is one of the most beautiful ornamental bamboos with a blue hue.
