    Thamnocalamus tessellatus (commonly known as "Berg Bamboo") is native to South Africa. It has a very unique appearance compared to other bamboos. The culms are very flexible even when old. African tribesmen used the canes to frame their shields. This is one of the few cold hardy clumping bamboos that can handle full sun and grows as upright as it does.
