Phyllostachys dulcis

Phyllostachys dulcis is named for its sweet shoots, which are considered to be one of the finest for eating.  This species has large, strongly tapered culms reaching a height of 30' - 40' with a culm diameter of 2" - 3".  This one is not for small spaces or right next to a walk, since it leans heavily toward the sun, but the leaning masses of lush, green foliage are highly ornamental.  To spread and increase in culm size quickly, it needs full sun exposure, and should be grown in moist, organic, slightly acid soil. Reportedly cold hardy down to 0 degrees F.
