Bamboo

Whilst bamboo can be seen as the backbone of an exotic garden, it can also be used elsewhere for a fast-growing hedge or groundcover. In Holland the tallest bamboos can become 8 to 10 (12) metres tall and between 6 to 8 (10) centimeters thick - see our 'news page' for the latest records - whereas the smallest only grows to 20 cm. Most species only become a few metres tall. There are edible bamboos and ones which produce good wood, green and variegated ones, but also black, green or yellow plants. There are those with rapidly spreading roots which have to be kept in check; others (like Borinda, Chusquea and Fargesia) stay more or less in one place. The minimum temperatures indicated here indicate the lowest temperature at which the bamboo still remains more or less evergreen. Usually the bamboos are not killed by lower temperatures; they will regrow in spring! Our plants are home-grown, and NOT PROPAGATED IN A LABORATORY (not propagated through tissue-culture).

A robust growing bamboo, suited to large gardens. A giant from the cool mountain climate of Central China. Grows upright with large leaves. It is very hardy but the leaves are susceptible to combinations of hard wind, sun and frost. The roots can reach a depth of 100cm (40") - you have been warned! Excellent for bamboo-culmproduction allthough the culms zigzag slightly..

Other clones from the Bambouseraie (Anduze) and from Japan are under observation. Phyllostachys requires plenty of water and manure during the growing season.
