Borinda papyrifera Stapleton 1046
One of the finest of modern introductions from the slopes of Zi Ben Shan, Yunnan, SW China at 3300m asl. The icy-blue-white new culm colour lasts extremely well; though equally good are the huge papery sheaths. Particularly strong upright growth to 5m, with the older culms arching under the weight of foliage. Very tightly clump forming with big thick culms.
