This bamboo (formerly Arundinaria murieliae and Thamnocalumus spathaceus) makes tall clumps with distinctive green canes the thickness of a garden cane. These are topped with large branching sprays of foliage held a little way out on wiry stems. The weight of the foliage often causes the canes to bend slightly, giving the plants an attractive arching appearance. This species is wind-resistant, so it is often planted as a screen or windbreak in a large garden Avoid cutting out the new canes in order to keep clumps confined, or they are eventually killed off. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
