It is frost tolerant and enjoys sun to partial shade.

Consequently, it’s often called White Bamboo and Emperor’s Blue Bamboo. These clumping bamboos are stunning and rare, and would be an excellent addition to your client’s tropical paradise. They can reach 30 feet in height and will make an excellent privacy screen. Emerald bamboo has good cold hardiness for a tropical bamboo and can tolerate temperatures down to 15 degrees Fahrenheit.

Graceful Bamboo (Bambusa textilis gracilis) – This Chinese variety, also known as Slender Weavers, lives up to its name by being the most graceful and lush of all bamboos.
