Phyllostachys vivax
(Chinese Timber Bamboo)

The most hardy of all the timber bamboos, this plant establishes and grows rapidly. It reaches astonishing sizes very quickly and grows very well here in the Pacific Northwest. The canes grow a deep emerald green and slowly matures to a yellowish green. This bamboo has larger, drooping green leaves. Recommended for a larger contained lot or garden. Similar to Phyllostachys Bambusoides, but with thinner cane walls and does not grow as upright as Phyllostachys Bambusoides.
