Seed raised from my own specimen from the flowering of 2019, this giant Chilean species creates a truly impressive clump of widely spaced thick culms extremely quickly. Culms are green, turning yellow between the nodes which are prominently branched. New culms have attractive, persistent cream sheaths, and the leaves are long and narrow. Height 7m. Non-running, but makes a broad clump. Recently raised from seed, so will not flower and die for many decades.
