Phyllostachys vivax- Vivax
The beautiful grove of Vivax at San Diego Botanic Garden (Quail) inspired us to grow it. We have it intermixed in our grove of ‘Bory’ and Vivax aureocaulis. It resembles P. bambusoides except that the culms have thinner walls and a white powdery band beneath each node at sheath-fall. Gray-green when mature.
