About Tropical Blue Bamboo
Sometimes called Emperor’s Blue Bamboo or White Bamboo, Tropical Blue Bamboo is a rare but popular medium-tight clumping bamboo from Southern China. It features light green leaves and nicely spaced thin-walled culms that develop a spectacular powder-like, white waxy bloom that gives them a pale blue appearance.
Bambusa chungii requires a little more room than other tight clumping varieties. Under ideal conditions (in full sun and good fertile soil), it will reach its maximum height of about 35 feet with 2-inch diameter culms in just a few years.
Tropical Blue Bamboo is cold hard to 20°F and tolerates wind, rain and dry conditions (with irrigation) while remaining beautiful. It is most spectacular as an ornamental or as a dense privacy hedge.
Many Uses for Clumping Bamboo
Clumping bamboo can be used in landscaping in many different ways, such as:
- Privacy screens
- Living fences
- Driveway plantings
- Noise barriers
- Storm barriers
- Dramatic focal pieces
- Backdrops for other tropical plants
- Soil stabilizer on slopes and river banks
Clumping bamboo can help you define separate spaces on a large property. Build a bamboo wall between a swimming pool and playground. Screen off garages and work areas or to block an unpleasant view.
Some varieties make excellent container plants for patios and poolside planting. Tall, erect varieties are beautiful when used as avenue plantings, and specimen clumpers can create a spectacular focal point in a landscape.
When provided with optimal growing conditions, clumping bamboos will grow fast and reach their mature height in as little as 4 years. Species like Oldhamii Bamboo, for example, can grow 2 to 3 feet each day during the summer growing season!
