I just noticed my two plants of Phy Propinqua ‘Beijing’ are flowering. Each came from a different nursery.

Looks like mine is too! It also put out half a dozen 18' culms this year in a huge sizeup, so I'm not concerned that this plant is weakened. I will be really disappointed if it dies in the next few years though...

Good luck, hope it survives! And I also hope seeds will be viable!

I've long suggested that Beijing sure looks to me like a member of the Glauca clan. Glauca 'Yunzhu' has been flowering for a few years. Might be a chance for someone to study the flowers, also would be suggestive if the other forms of Glauca flower soon.

No flowers on 'Beijing' here, just 2 very big shoots.

Mine didn't seem to start growing the flowers until after the shoots were quite tall, so check again in a week or two.

Will do Alan. It did have some quirky behaviour last year.

After showing my girlfriend what flowering bamboo looks like she pointed out that mine is also flowering. I showed her a few weeks ago that my veridiglaucecens was flowering . I will try to post pictures of it tomorrow. And of course if I can figure out how to get seeds people are welcome to them.
