We have spoken about Gracilis before but look at these photos.  In less than 2 years there is a beautiful green screen down the driveway.  This provides excellent privacy and also a wind barrier.

The botanical name for this versatile bamboo is Bambusa textilis var. gracilis with a common name of Slender Weavers bamboo.  We use the word versatile as it quite drought tolerant and can also handle very cold temperatures. This means it is perfect for our country given the varied temperatures and conditions this plant has to contend with.  

This is a clumping type of bamboo as can be seen by these pictures. The culms clump together to build that perfect hedge or screen.  We can give more information about how many you need to plant to create the desired screen at your property.

This bamboo has a maximum height of approximately 6 to 8 metres which is sufficient to hide neighbouring buildings.  Another reason this bamboo is great for screening is it is very fast growing. The picture of the driveway screen above show that this screen was created in about 1.5 years.

As always, we are just at the end of the phone, if you have any queries about this bamboo or any other bamboo (1300 654 454).  You can also come to our nursery to see this an our other bamboo varieties, or you can visit at one of our many different markets and expos.
