Incense Bamboo

Phyllostachys atrovaginata 'Congesta'

Height: 25′
Cold Resistance:-5F.
Light:Sun to moderate shade.

Called “Incense” because the canes are supposed to have an incense smell when scratched. I’ve never been able to smell anything. This bamboo is one of my favorites. I like the very erect canes that are sort of stocky looking. The shoots are supposed to be good to eat with very little bitterness. This is the most cold hardy “giant bamboo” which makes it very popular.
