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 largest bamboos can become 8 to 10 metres tall and between 4 to 6 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 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).
