Angel Mist Bamboo, also known as Ghost Bamboo, is a stunning ornamental variety of clumping bamboo. The origin of Dendrocalamus bamboo family is Southern China. It is virtually identical to Ghost Bamboo commonly found in Australia but has green canes. While it is one of the ‘giant bamboo’ varieties, Angel Mist is actually one of the smallest of the giants. In addition, one of its most striking features is the colorful culms that it produces.
Shoots emerge covered in a waxy powder that provides a beautiful blue look. Canes eventually mature into an olive yellow color with dark green striping. Growing in a tight clump, Angel Mist Bamboo features large dark green leaves that emphasize its status as a giant bamboo. In addition, the leaves are fairly tolerant to wind. However, the mature plant has no lower branches, thus making it a perfect specimen for a walkway or smaller urban garden. Over time, it will create an impressive green canopy.
Angel Mist bamboo is the most desirable Amoenus variety, especially since it is suitable for many landscapes. Out of the Dendrocalamus family, not only is Angel Mist one of the smallest, but it is also one of the most frost tolerant. Once established, it also has a good drought tolerance.
