ABC Wednesday "V" is for "vertically varigated"

It's hard to believe these are bamboo stalks. I have no idea why they're pink.  These stood in the midst of other green bamboo stalks in a neighbor's yard here in Seattle. I should look this up...have these stalks fallen victim to some kind of blight? Off to Google!

See other V's on ABC WEDNESDAY.

Sure is a complimentary color combination. Hope you get an answer to share.

another lovely composition, bibi. thank you.

Alexa said...

I always look forward to what you do on alphabet day!

Lowell said...

I think Ms. Edelstein has the answer. Someone bamboozled you. I like the colors, though!

Bibi said...

Daryl, Lowell, I googled citronella and came up with nothing that looks like this. These were growing from the soil, I looked! And those wick-looking tops were either some sort of rot or else a peculiar outgrowth.

So pretty but what is it?


Variety of Wild Birds, have a nice day.

Surely too pretty a colour to be a 'blight'. Maybe its a some sort of exotic lichen, definitely nice to look at.

They look like horsetail to me. equisetaceae Are you sure it's bamboo? (of course, I have no idea what bamboo looks like, although I've seen plenty of horsetail).
