Phyllostachys Prominens is a new bamboo for Scottish Bamboo in 2013 and thus far we are very impressed! It seems to be growing very similar in form and colour to Phyllostachys Shanghai 3 so we have high hopes for it producing good sized culms and good height (probably 6 metres in Scotland).

Our observations so far:

Culms - glossy green possibly reaching diameter of 8-9cm

Leaves - dull green and can grow up to 12cm long

Prefers a protected sunny (or softly shaded) site

This bamboo is a very strong grower with its culms maturing to a great thickness and a bright glossy green. If you are looking for a bamboo to impress and have the space then this is the bamboo you are looking for.
