Nuda bamboo (Phyllostachys nuda)
fil-lo-STAK-iss new-dah
Genus:  Phyllostachys
Nuda is one of the hardiest bamboos. New culms emerge purplish green, eventually lightening to match the leaf color. This is a running bamboo, so take precautions for restraint. Though it is reluctant to spread into very dry soils, it is resistant to some drought.
Noteworthy Characteristics:  Hardy, tall bamboo to 15 feet and as wide as you wish.
Care:  Rich, moist but well-drained soil in full sun or part shade. Can take some drought.
Propagation:  Divide in spring.
Problems:  Rust and stem smut are common, while slugs and snails can attack emerging shoots.
