We simply adore this stunning clumping bamboo that makes an 18' tall deer-resistant clump (35' in more tropical areas) of 1" diameter canes, vertically striped gold and green. We have observed slight foliage burn at 10 degrees F and some cane dieback at 8 degrees F. While we have had clumps of Bambusa 'Alphonse Karr' die back to the ground at 0 degrees F, they have always resprouted nicely when summer warmth arrived, although it takes a few years to recover their full size.
