Phyllostachys pubescens (Phyllostachys edulis) - Moso Bamboo


A large bamboo from China with large bluish-green culms with a striking silver tint, and deep green, beautifully arching foliage.  Exceptionally fast-growing within its native bamboo tree forests.

 

Giant, clumping bamboo (non-invasive)

 

Can reach up to 15-30 feet (5-10 m) within temperate Europe.  Please note that within warmer regions of the world, they will eventually form some rhizome runners — and can even do so in cooler climates after they age, so tree root barriers can help keep the clumps stay more localised.

 

Hardy to -20ºC (-4ºF)

 

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
