Description:Native to Southern China, Oldhamii Bamboo can block out a two to a three-storey house in under three years. One of Melbourne’s most significant and fastest-growing bamboo with large tropical leaves. Deep green foliage has smooth clumps and thick dark green culms (stems). This bamboo is commonly known as Speedy Screen due to its fast-growing nature and the ability to screen out unwanted views or create a valuable wind/sound break.
A clean appearance with an erect growth habit and high-quality edible shoots. The Culms (Stems) are solid and great for furniture making, construction or crafts. Large mature Culms (Stems) can also look great in a vase for decoration. Oldhamii loves the room and can grow up to 3m wide if allowed. This is also a versatile bamboo as it can grow in just about any soil type. Ideal for our farmers and people with acreage to define areas, block or look great in the garden. Oldhamii can even assist with any erosion control.
