Another Identification request
This bamboo has been on the property since I bought it in late 2011. It has likely been here for at least 7 years (judging by the previous owners) so it is cold hardy below zero F.
Here is what I know:
It appears to be a runner
It gets about an inch maybe 1.5 inches in diameter, most culms are closer to 3/4 inch.
There are many culms 12 to 15 feet tall, it may get taller.
It likes to bend at lower nodes and many culms zig zag for a foot or two near the ground.
Leaves are usually about .5-1 inch wide and 3-5 inches long.
I have attached a picture of a new shoot. I have other pictures and can (hopefully) answer any questions you have.
I have a couple guesses but I would love to see what the experts think it is. I want to know what I have to I can use it and groom it correctly.
