Barbelletta Bamboo

Botanical Name: Bambusa Chungii Barbelletta

Description: Native to Southern China, this bamboo is a smaller version of its parent plant Chungii. Beautiful and tall culms have a bluish tinge, and culms are covered in white bloom. Barbelletta is a stunning looking bamboo that will quickly become a tall feature in your garden. A lovely tight clumping growth bamboo makes this bamboo a great screening plant or a standalone Bamboo. This bamboo can be pruned to any height and looks excellent pleached. Pleaching is the process of removing the bottom leaves revealing the bare canes. The contrast of the bare canes against the upper green foliage adds another dimension to your garden.
