Bamboo - textilis gracilis - Bambusa textilis gracilis - $70.00
Semi to Drought
This is the most beautiful and most popular of all bamboos. A clumping type, it has wonderful thin stalks (about 4cm) that are elegant and fantastically architectural.
If you want to block out anything, noise, pollution, neighbours - this is the bamboo for you.. Very thin matting root system as well.
It will grow to 6 mtrs in 2 years, has a very upright habit and does not drop a lot of leaf matter.
Gracilis has a lovely classic bamboo look to it, graceful, pretty and uniformly erect. Loves sunshine, outdoors and is drought tolerant.
Full sun to part shade. Can handle to -15C and will handle drought but thrives with a feed and water.
Very hardy - and we dont know of any pests.
