Yushania confusa is a virtually unknown clumping bamboo, shared with us by our friend, the late garden designer Wolfgang Oehme, from a magnificent clump that grew in his Maryland garden. Yushania confusa, which hails from 3,000'-7,000' elevation in south central China, has thrived in our heat, humidity, and cold since 2004, where it has formed a splendid clump to 3' wide at the base. The 6' tall silvery grey culms arch outward to form a 9' wide fountain...simply elegant!
