Chimonobambusa tumidinoda zone 8 20' max. ht., 1 ¼ " culm dia., running cold hardiness 10 °F. This bamboo is used to make walking sticks in China. It is unusual because of the swollen nodes, arching culms and delicate, feathery foliage. It can be used as a dense screen or the low branches can be pruned to show off the interesting culms. Will grow outdoors from Atlanta south and does best with shade.
