BAMBUSA textilis var. GRACILIS

10m x 3cm, -9°C   Slender Weavers' Bamboo - A slightly smaller variety of B. textilis that makes an elegant addition to a garden. Very popular for hedges and screenings.  The thin walled culms are good as stakes and light poles for tools.  The photos below illustrate 2 extremes of how a bamboo clump can grow.  The first photo is of a 4 year old planting of Gracilis in Brisbane China Town.  It is heavy pruned to keep it small.  The second photo is a 15 year old clump on Earthcare Farm at Crystal Waters.  It is growing in rich alluvial soil on the creek flat.
