You may be confusing P. Congesta, ans P Astrovaginata. They are one and
tghe same. Unfortunately this is a ersult of all the naming problems
associated with the identification of a plant that may not flower for
in excess of 100 years.

I saw the (labelled as) "P. congesta" at Kew Gardens (London) this
weekend. It was the most memorable of all the stands, with the fattest
culms at Kew (about 2" diameter). According to Whittaker's "Hardy
Bamboos" this is an old name for P. atrovaginata. My girlfriend
thought it exceptionally nice, but agreed it was a good thing we didn't
have it in the garden...
