Punting Pole Bamboo
55' tall, 2.3" dia culms, good to 18° Fahrenheit
The large, thick walled culms make this one of the most useful tropical bamboos. Culms are frequently solid near the base. Prolific culm producer in a semi-open clump. This is the bamboo used for the Gulf Coasts "Calcutta surf poles" of years past. Very strong, straight culms are highly sought after for tool handles, crafts, etc.
