ID Scottish Boo

Hi All,

My folks sent me this picture near their house in Scotland.
They think it could have been planted up to 100 years ago.
I think its a runner but growing like a clumper due to the cold weather they get.
Any ideas what it could be?

Looks kinda like Semiarundinaria but you'd think it would run during 100 years. It must really like Scotland.

Hi Richard,

Can you get a closeup of the culms and leaves. It looks very interesting.

I always thought Scotstralia was one big island. Have your folks sometime send you some close ups of the bamboo.
