(syn: Yushania boliana) We have longed for hardy clumping bamboo of Sasquatch proportions and we now have it. Our 3-year-old clumps of the deer-resistant Borinda boliana have already reached 10' tall, with 0.5-1" diameter arching blue-green culms. In warm temperate climates, mature plants of Borinda boliana should top out at 50' tall, so don't plant these under power lines or airline flight paths. Our Borinda boliana plants, however were burned back at 9 degrees F, despite prior information to the contrary. Conversely, they have thrived through 3 consecutive weeks of above 100 degrees F heat and humidity in full sun. We are ecstatic about this marlin-sized fishing poles, biomass fuel potential, and a quick way to hide your untidy neighbors!
