Ce bambou a été introduit en Europe en 1987 par l'anglais Peter Addington.

Il est très élégant avec son port souple et ses feuilles fines et étroites. Sa principale caractéristique est la forme de ses noeuds aplatis comme deux cymbales.

Plante d'exception pour les jardins frais abrités des vents. Le port tout en souplesse est superbe et son feuillage vert clair mérite une contemplation de tout instant.
Hauteur 5 m +, résiste à – 18° à condition d'être en milieu ombré mais lumineux.
Diamètre des chaumes jusque 30 mm. Le diamètre des nœuds est 2 fois supérieur à celui des entre nœuds.

Qiongzhuea tumidissinoda_Common name: Chinese Walking Stick Bamboo
Height: 18 feet_ Diameter: 0.75 inch _Hardiness: 10° F
With its very large disk like nodes, this bamboo is very popular for making canes and walking sticks in Sichuan, China. The name tumidissinoda is descriptive of the greatly enlarged nodes.
This is a bamboo of multiple attributes. The culms with the swollen nodes being the principal attraction, and its beautiful foliage the other. It is also known for its delicious tasting shoots.

"Chinese Walking Stick" is an extraordinary and rare bamboo with very
unique saucer shaped nodes. The canes with their showy nodes are
crafted into walking sticks in Sichuan China. The tiered arrangement of
the feather-like foliage and the dramatic canes makes this an outstanding
and unusual plant.

Qiongzhuea tumidissinoda, Chinese Walking Stick Bamboo, was introduced to the
U.S. in the mid 90's and is still relatively rare here. The prominent culm nodes are
the trademark of this bamboo, but its weeping habit and lacy foliage are also
features that make it an outstanding ornamental. The culms are used for
decorative walking sticks, furniture and crafts, and the fresh shoots are some of the
most prized in China. Native to the high plateaus of Sichuan and Yunnan
provinces, this bamboo is well adapted to the cool climate and acid soils of
western Washington and is hardy to 10 degrees F. or maybe a little lower. It is a
very vigorous, fast-spreading bamboo under the right growing conditions, attaining
a maximum height of 20' and culm diameter of about 1" (a little greater at the
nodes). It thrives in partial sun to nearly full shade, growing in rich, moist, well-
drained soil with some irrigation in summer. This is my absolute favorite bamboo
for its graceful form and delicate appearance, making a stunning focal point.
