Chusquea coronalis (Mexican Climbing Bamboo) - One of the most beautiful of the bamboo. This slow-growing clump-forming bamboo has gracefully arching culms to 15 feet tall. There are very fine whorls of tiny leaves at the culm nodes. The tendency of culms is to arch back to the ground which creates a fluffy, soft appearance. Protect from frosts (Hardy to 28 degrees F.) and extreme heat or reflected sun. A wonderful specimen for containers, especially around a pond or water feature. It is not unusual for this bamboo to look a bit chlorotic through the winter months. A good dose of fertilizer in the early spring will green it up quickly. There are some beautiful specimens in the Japanese garden in Lotusland in Montecito, California. Native to Sinaloa, Colima, Chiapas in Mexico and south through Guatemala, El Salvador and Costa Rica.  Information displayed on this page about  Chusquea coronalis is based on the research conducted about it in our library and from reliable online resources. We also note those observations we have made of this plant as it grows in the nursery's garden and in other gardens, as well how crops have performed in our nursery field. We will incorporate comments we receive from others, and welcome to hear from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if they share any cultural information that would aid others in growing it.
