Borinda are clumping bamboos from Bhutan, Tibet, Yunnan & Sichuan. They are similar in appearance to Fargesia, but have different flowers and short rhizomes.

Borinda albocerea

Borinda albocerea

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

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.

Phyllostachys nigra 'Bory' is a timber form of nigra that deserves wide recognition. It produces some of the best quality wood of any bamboo that can be grown in Canada.  A common name for this bamboo is Snakeskin, because of the way that the culms are marked.  Although a nigra the culms are not pure black, but instead develop spots or patches of dark color. When the culms are cut and seasoned, the green sections turn a straw color, and the spots show cloud-like shades of brown and ebony. The result is an excellent quality bamboo pole, that has coloring that looks like snakeskin. In Japan this bamboo is used in Tea Houses, for high quality, specialty finish work.  This bamboo makes a great tall screen, and the exceptional quality poles, are a bonus.
