A 2012 import from S.W. China. Released from USDA quarantine in March/2013. Will be test-grown and propagated for one year, then available in 2014.
Culms scandent, pendulous at the tip. Grows amongst other trees and plants, using them for support. New shoots and young culms are black. Culm-internodes, smooth; distally glabrous. Branch complement, several.
Dimensions are difficult to describe as it generally takes the form of whatever supports it. The culms will be smaller than 1/2" diameter and their length can be more than 30' long, each leaning and winding upwards through support branches and foliage.
Cold-hardiness is unknown at this time, however it will likely suffer in sub-freezing temperatures.
