Although the culms have already drifted from red towards orange I think red-hot still applies.:angryfire:
The wintergreen leaves of GenF just beginning to replenish.

My Bambusa ventricosa 'Kimmei' has several deep pink to maroon new culms right now but that is just freaking awesome red there. I wonder how much your climate has to do with it?

Is that Photoshop or Gimp photo colour enhance function? Because I have to think this colour is way too cool to be true. :mrgreen:

wind-borne;

Is this the first year you've seen such striking culm colour or is it a regular occurrence? Also wondering how much sun it gets. I ask as I got 'Genf' from Bamboo Garden a few years ago and it's still in a tub, a big one mind you, but sitting in bright shade so no fireworks like yours here. Puts J.#1 to shame eh?

No photos I post have any enhancement, post processing, etc.
I take lots of photos but refuse to work on them outside of an occasional crop/straighten

same color last year, only had plant year and a half. 1 gallon that I divided immediately.
This GenF gets full sun late fall through early spring and afternoon sun late spring to early fall.
My other GenF is almost the opposite light regime and less striking as far as culm color.

following up a bit

John, couple pics of the other half of GenF division as contrast. Odd that this plant has about a half dozen new shoots ~4’ already branching out and the bright one’s first shoot just now rising.

Tarzanus, maybe strong sunlight bleeding the colors rather than the glistening afterglow of a night of rain looks truer? :alien:

Moderators, please bar posting of any more photos of this variety. It's too gorgeous and is making me envious! :wink:
