  • Borinda albocerea

    Borinda albocerea

    * Max Height 20' (West Coast Estimate 10 Feet)
    * Max Culm Dia 1"
    * Evergreen to -12C
    * Sun or Shade

    This beautiful clumping bamboo has a bluish–white waxy coating that completely covers its culms. As the canes age the wax slowly comes off, revealing its true green cane.  Its leaf is fairly large with stunning blue undertones. Borinda albocerea grows upright to a max height of about 20 feet but we estimate it will only reach about 10 feet in select protected west coast micro climates.  

    This bamboo prefers at least partial shade, but will also do well in full sun.

    Due to its cold hardiness, this bamboo is recommended for select, well protected, West Coast Micro Climates only.
