Himalayacalamus falconeri Damarapa (Candy Cane Bamboo)
This bamboo is native to the Himalayan mountains. The canes are green with cream and pink striping. It can be difficult to grow in south Florida, as it does not like intense heat and sunlight. Pictured to the left is a plant that we had growing in a container in Fort Lauderdale for four years, barely surviving. At our new location in the Sarasota area, we planted it under some oak trees and it is beginning to thrive. We hope to have some of this bamboo available for sale in 2008. It will do best in zone 9A (map) in filtered sunlight, or in a cooler zone.
Max. height: 20 ' Max. diameter: 2 " Minimum Temperature: 15o F.
