Chinese Goddess Bamboo
Chinese Goddess, 'Riviereorum' (Bambusa multiplex)
Source tree from Bamboo Garden Nursery, Jan 2017
I love this bamboo. Small feathery graceful leaves that grow in sections. Very thin canes that grow in elegant clumps. It looks so good in summer. But like most bamboo down here, it looks pretty ragged in winter/spring.
Spring 2018, looks ragged after winter, will green up in the summer
