Gracilis – Bambusa textilis Gracilis
Commonly known as Slender Weavers Bamboo, this bamboo has straight, thin walled poles and is very tidy and upright. It is great for small suburban yards as a feature plant or is a useful screening plant. Because Gracilis is extremely fast growing it will create a dense attractive clump and screening bamboo. It is very cold tolerant and will grow well in most parts of Australia. This is a must have variety if you are a bamboo enthusiast.
Growing tips: Bamboo is hardy and will grow in most soil conditions. Applying a good organic fertiliser and mulch will encourage fast, healthy growth.
