Phyllostachys nigra 'Henon Bamboo' - A graceful giant, growing to over 20 feet tall, with canes nearly 4 inches in diameter. The leaves are about 3 inches long and about one-half inch wide. The most distinguishing characteristic is the thin film of white powder-like coating on the stems; young shoots have a tawny hue, tinted in wine color with coating of brown hairs. Henon is a proven performer that makes a great statement if it is provided the room. Running Bamboo

Bamboo is technically a grass which grows more rapidly than any other plant on the planet. New bamboo shoots can grow as much as 3 feet in one day. Bamboo has been most widely used for shelter, food, paper, jewelry, and clothes in Asia. Bamboo can be divided into two main categories: clumpers and runners. Clumpers tend to send out new shoots within a couple of feet of the clump each year. Runners, however, send out new shoots much farther from the original clump. Bamboo culms can be ten times stronger than steel. Bamboo plants like a lot of water, but they also need a well-drained soil. Bamboo is a symbol of long life, strength and versatility for many cultures of the world.
