Example text

For example in Asia the Tortoiseshell bamboo, Phyllostachys heterocycla f. heterocycla ‘Kiko’, has thickened and distorted internodes, rather like a tortoiseshell, but in temperate climates it seldom produces these distortions. The reasons for the development of swollen internodes are not known. Many American, Japanese and English authors have tried to produce a precise botanical classification for all known bamboo species, but none has proved to be definitive. Scientists cannot agree about the taxonomy.

Between sheath and blade, many species have auricles (ear-like projections) with bristles, sometimes with a fringed ligule as well (see diagram below). Some species lack auricles altogether. The blades of the sheath increase in size towards the tip of the culm and may develop into proper leaves. In many Phyllostachys species the blade is completely developed inside the shoot. This means that they are folded up, occupying just a tiny space. Such blades, when they appear, often have not only pretty colours but also very interesting patterns.

His eccentric style was described as comparable to ‘frightened snakes and sudden storms’. By contrast, the calligraphy of Wang Xizhi (307–65) was compared to mist and settling dew. Splitting bamboo culms for painting and wickerwork Eastern calligraphy takes its particular artistic form from the brush, known in China for about 6,000 years. From the beginning this was finely constructed: animal hair on a long, flexible bamboo handle. The hair was arranged in a wedge shape – thick at the base and increasingly thin towards the tip – so that both the finest lines and broad, powerful strokes could be painted.
