DENDROCALAMUS asper cv : “Sri Pratchin”

10m x 10cm, -5°C
A smaller, selected cultivar from Prachin Thailand, grown for shoot production. After the disastrous collapse of the Thai asper shoot industry due to mass flowering of their asper cultivars in the late 90s, the industry had to re-establish from seedlings and later from tissue culture of superior clones. This clone is the best, or at least one of the best. It can be considered for a suburban garden because it is not too big or too vigorous and the shoots are great to eat.
