Bamboo is technically a grass which grows more rapidly than any other plant on the planet. New bamboo shoots can grow as much as 3 feet in one day. Bamboo has been most widely used for shelter, food, paper, jewelry, and clothes in Asia. Bamboo can be divided into two main categories: clumpers and runners. Clumpers tend to send out new shoots within a couple of feet of the clump each year. Runners, however, send out new shoots much farther from the original clump. Bamboo culms can be ten times stronger than steel. Bamboo plants like a lot of water, but they also need a well-drained soil. Bamboo is a symbol of long life, strength and versatility for many cultures of the world.
WE OFFER THE FOLLOWING VARIETIES OF BAMBOO:
Timber Bamboo – is a native plant of Japan and is widely grown all around the United States. The Timber Bamboo has attractive bright green stalks which grow extremely tall and its branches sprout out soft narrow green leaves near the top half, keeping the bottom half significantly cooler. These plants are conveniently thornless, extremely flexible and hardy in cold and hot climates. Japanese Timber Bamboo easily transform any basic garden or patio into a lush tropical relaxing setting.
Golden Goddess Bamboo – The perfect bamboo for smaller gardens, Golden Goddess has a well-mannered clumping form that can be easily maintained at under 8 ft. tall. Fantastic container or screen plant. Graceful, arching form for exotic tropical or Asian effect. Non-invasive. Evergreen.
Arrow Bamboo – Is native to South Korea and Japan and is a favorite for indoor use or outdoor screening with height restrictions and is extremely shade tolerant. It will average 12 to 16 feet, in most areas of the country, with its long, strap-like, arrow-shaped foliage beginning as low as one foot, but can be “limbed up” to form what looks like a very attractive small tree. It can grow very dense if not thinned providing a very lush green screening effect. Also wind and salt tolerant.
Black Bamboo – Add an exotic, Asian look to the landscape with this rare form of bamboo. Fast growing, upright stems turn black in their second season, contrasting nicely with the rich green foliage. Spreads quickly by underground runners; without containment it may become invasive. Evergreen. Thick foliage clumps may reach 15 to 20 ft. tall, left unpruned.
