A very cold-hardy bamboo, tolerating temperatures down to about -22°c. According to some authorities this species is no more than a form of Thamnocalamus spathaceus. Most leaves are produced at the tops of the stems. The plant has a running rootstock but does not spread far in the cooler climate of Britain and never becomes invasive. Produces its new shoots from late April. This species is notably resistant to honey fungus.Plants only flower at intervals of many years. When they do come into flower most of the plants energies are directed into producing seed and consequently the plant is severely weakened. They sometimes die after flowering, but if left alone they will usually recover though they will look very poorly for a few years. If fed with artificial NPK fertilizers at this time the plants are more likely to die.
