Hey y'all. I hope your spring shoots are tall and glorious now.

I recently came upon a grove where the owner thinks the following are Phllyostachys bambusoides, but my recollection of P. bam. is that they have two rings at the node margin. These seem to have the white powder at the margin, which would indicate P. nuda to me. Can someone help ID?

I was going to say that the shoot looks a lot like a Ph. dulcis shoot, but there are probably several species with similar shoots, and dulcis doesn't have the powdery culms.

I think you're right, it certainly could be Phy. dulcis. Apparently the younger culms can have powder at the margins (http://www.bamboogarden.com/Phyllostachys%20dulcis.htm). Also, in this particular grove, all the culms seemed to top out at about 40 feet.
