(HCA) This Tibetan bamboo is a stately and highly decorative ornamental. In more sun, culms turn maroon to almost black with delicate purplish green leaves. In summer shade, the culms remain rich green with white node rings. Culms get darker, sometimes almost black, in winter. Grows to 20' tall with 1½" in diameter in the climate of origin, 15'’ tall with ¾"” diameter here locally. Can tolerate temperatures down to only 15 degrees, and likes a half-day of sun. Shoots in the spring and fall.

(HCC) This new introduction is a tight clumper with foliage and growth habit similar to H. falconeri 'Damarapa',’ with less arching at the top. New shoots are unique in having light green sheaths with spiraling dark green stripes. Sheaths are dropped quickly as the solid, dark green culms grow about 20' tall and 1 ¼" diameter in the climate of origin. Cold hardy to 20 F. Most attractive as an isolated clump.

(HCFD) A highly decorative plant: gold canes with multiple green stripes, becoming shades of pink, cranberry, and purple with dark stripes in the spring and summer sun. Looks best with some leaves trimmed away from lower parts of canes to expose to sun and show off colors. Masses of leaves grow on long, slender, arching branchlets. Grows up to 30' tall with 2" diameter culms in the climate of origin. Here locally, it can reach 16' in height with 1.5" diameters. Prefers a half-day of sun, morning or afternoon, except in climates with frequent 100 degree summer temperatures, where it tolerates am sun and bright, indirect light only. Hardy to 20 degrees.

Himalayacalamus hookerianus 'Falcatus'

(HCHF) Almost identical in appearance to 'Blue Bamboo', but more gray-blue and shorter, growing about 15' in the climate of origin. Tolerates a full day of sun, but also is less cold hardy at 25 degrees.

Himalayacalamus porcatus

(HCP) A very upright, tight clumper with light green leaves and misty green canes covered with a white powder. New shoot sheaths are almost black, but drop off as the culms grow, revealing nearly white new culms, which darken only slightly with age. Multiple short branches grow from each node, and culms reach 15' tall and 1" in diameter in the climate of origin. Cold hardy to 20 F. Excellent specimen plant or hedge.
