Gracilis Bamboo (Slender Weavers)

Botanical Name: Bambusa textilis var. gracilis

Description: Native to China, Gracilis /Slender Weavers Bamboo is the undisputed bamboo king of all bamboos. Gracilis is one of our most popular varieties. It is very similar to Bambusa textilis var. It has a thinner and more slender cane profile with small evergreen leaves. Gracilis is a clumping bamboo with a very tight upright clump habit. Due to its size, it is perfect for screening out neighbouring buildings or other non-desirable views. This bamboo can also be ideal for soil stability and erosion control. Gracilis bamboo can be used as a hedge and pruned to any height. If used as a hedge, the thickness of its growth provides a great noise or wind barrier. Plant along your driveway to make a perfect living green fence. It can grow in a 500mm wide garden bed, making it ideal for planting the blind side of your home. Gracilis is an elegant bamboo, especially when pleached.
