Another chance for the boo experts to make I.D.

These are of my Unknown Phyllostachys. Sorry the pics aren't better. Since it was top killed over winter, I can't

do any plant pics. Culms are solid green in summer, and

there are no compressed nodes, or zig zag culms.

need more of a closeup of the new culms to be 100%, but appears from the colors on the new culms that it is semiarundinaria fastuosa or Temple Bamboo. Rgds

Thanks for the input Fred. I'm pretty sure it's a Phyllostachys of some type though, two branches per node,
unequal branch length, and a distinct sucules. (sp)?

It's also the hardiest of all my boo's, and being on the
cold side of zone 5, I don't think semiarundinaria fastuosa
would do all that well.

Looks like my Bisetti but can't say for sure.
