Dendrocalamus latiflorus - (Taiwan Giant Bamboo)

 

An extremely rare, giant clumping bamboo (non-invasive) native to Southern China and Taiwan, growing to heights of around 45-80 ft (14-25 m)  in the wild, and around 40 ft (12 m) within temperate Europe

 

The attractive culms (8-20 cm in diameter) are green and light blue, with yellow/orange peelings giving a striped appearance

 

Leaf-blades are lance-shaped and between 15-40 cm long and 8-20 cm wide


Loves high rainfall!

 

They grow well on various soil types, but prefer moist and sandy loam, fertile soils. Aim for good drainage

 

Hardy to around -4 ºC (25ºF), the key is to keep the soil on the dry side during any frost (good drainage)

 

Bamboo seeds are not always available due to worldwide shortages of most species; this is because they rarely flower, sometimes only every 30 to even 100 years (called gregarious flowering)

 

Please note: full germination instructions are printed on each pack
