Buy Graceful Bamboo Plants Wholesale
Buy Graceful Bamboo plants from Palmco, where we produce only the healthiest, strongest bamboos for the wholesale market that will enhance your next residential or commercial landscaping project.
Palmco specializes in non-invasive clumping bamboos. These are some of the most impressive bamboos in the world. Many of our plants can be used as focal points while others can be used to create privacy screens, hedges and windbreaks.
Our Bambusa and Dendrocalamus species of subtropical clumping bamboo are native to China, Indonesia, Burma, Thailand, India, Tibet and elsewhere in Southeast Asia. They produce new shoots in summer and fall and branch out, slowly enlarging the plant’s circumference, during the winter and early spring.
In just three to four years, many of these species will reach their full height and produce beautiful canopies that will rival any shade tree. In comparison, an oak tree can take 40 years to reach its full potential.
Graceful Bamboo (Bambusa textilis gracilis), which originates in Southern China, is graceful, luxuriant and one of our favorite bamboos. It has an upright growth pattern with foliage that cascades gracefully and leaf tips that point downward. We often refer to it as the “ideal” bamboo.
Graceful Bamboo is a very fast growing and well-behaved bamboo that can reach heights up to 25 feet tall within 2 to 3 years. It is very popular with homeowners in northern states because it can handle temperatures down to 15 degrees Fahrenheit, and is being used in Florida as an alternative to the Areca Palm and Ficus.
All textilis varieties form tight erect clumps and are ideal for narrow spaces or where a strong vertical look is desired. They are often planted in a row to create a beautiful privacy hedge. Mature plants will be branchless on the lower third of the culms, so you can see the attractive 1-inch diameter canes without having to prune the plant.
How to Use Clumping Bamboo
Clumping bamboo is ideal for defining spaces on a large property. Build a wall between a swimming pool and playground. Create a fresh and green living fence. Use it to screen off garages and work areas or to block an unpleasant view within a few short years. Some varieties make excellent container plants for patios and poolside planting.
Tall, erect varieties are beautiful when used as avenue or driveway plantings. A specimen clump of bamboo can also create a spectacular focal point in a landscape, but it’s important to allow them enough space so the plant can be seen to its best advantage.
