culm - one of the solid stems of sledges, rushes, and similar monocotyledonous plants




Phyllostachys - this genus is one of the most numerous; there are around 50 commercially available varieties in the UK. They are generally medium to large bamboos mostly originating in China and most are hardy to about -15C. They have moderately invasive rhizomes, but these are easily checked. They have great value as specimen plants due to their attractive and varied culm colour e.g. black, yellow, pink, green, striped or spotted. The culms are generally thicker but fewer than for other genera. The internodes have a shallow groove on alternate sides. An attraction of this genus is that the grooves often have a contrasting colour to the main culm. Due to their height, they are suitable for tall screens or as an individual specimen in a bed or container. For best results you will need good irrigation, rich soil - and full sun.
