Bamboo

Very attractive and useful, Bamboo is actually a giant grass with woody stems. Each culm (or cane) grows quickly from the ground in the spring and attains its maximum height in a few weeks. New culms sprout each year, increasing in diameter as the plant ages. Bamboo makes a graceful and attractive evergreen screen or windbreak. A grove of bamboo is a peaceful place to sit, enjoying the little birds that love to flit about in it. In addition to Bamboo's value as an ornamental plant, you can harvest and eat the delicious shoots. Cut the new shoots below the soil line shortly after they emerge in the spring. They are delicious sliced and sauteed in stir frys. In addition, individual culms can be cut out and used for garden stakes or poles. We offer both spreading and clumping Bamboo. The spreading types typically grow taller and have larger canes than the clumping types. Spreading types may need to be contained to keep them from growing into areas where they are not wanted. Harvesting the shoots is a good way to restrain the spreading types of Bamboo. They can also be contained by mowing when culms are young or by installing a barrier of sheet metal or plastic 20 inches deep around the area where you want the Bamboo to grow. Clumping Bamboo spreads slowly and does not usually need to be contained. For an attractive, evergreen screen, plant Bamboo 4-6 ft. apart (clumping varieties 2-3 ft. apart) and it will quickly fill in the gaps. Both types of Bamboo can also make spectacular container plants. See our very interesting and useful books on growing Bamboo in the Book section. Sorry, we cannot ship Bamboo to Hawaii.
