COMMON NAME: GRACILIS BAMBUSA TEXTILIS, SLENDER WEAVER BAMBOO
Pot Size: 30cm / 12″ / 300mm
Gracilis Bambusa Textilis or commonly known as Slender Weaver, is one of the fastest growing bamboos around. It is a clumping bamboo and the absolute leader in its class, reaching screening heights of over 6 meters in a relatively short amount of time.
From a 30cm / 300mm pot, this Bamboo could reach full height in under 15 months! Making it the most cost effective and eco-friendly way of putting up a screen to block out noise, bad views or simply gaining privacy for your home (blocking out neighbours). Bamboo are generally more expensive than other screening plants, but when you weigh up the pros you will see why it beats just about any plant or fencing product for screening.
Interesting Fact: Bamboo is also considered one of the strongest materials around (stronger than steel) and is still used in many countries around the world for scaffolding on large development sites.
Position: Full sun to part shade
Height: 6m to 8m
