Dark green canes with white rings at the nodes this bamboo makes an impressive grove. It is one of the most cold hardy bamboos and will stay green down to -10F. The rhizomes can survive even lower temperatures. It wont reach the max. heigth in a cold climate. It makes a great screening bamboo for a very cold climate.
This is my grove of P.nuda. It is about 20 years old. We keep it controlled with a creek on one side and mowing around it.
The shoots of Nuda bamboo are purplish with a mottled look.
