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).

Eucalyptus gunnii divaricata

silver blue cider gum

Eucalyptus gunnii divaricata
  • Solitary
  • Mediterranean
  • Hardy to -20 °C
Very rapid growing spindly Eucalyptus; rather more silver-blue leaved and hardier than Eucalyptus gunnii from gardencenters; good for flower-arranging. Bark is grey-green to brown or white as a sycamore. Usually in stock. Unharmed after the extreme freeze in March 2005! Awesome tree. In its native Tasmania almost extinct caused by grazing and climate change.
