Bambusa textilis 'gracilis
(Graceful Bamboo)
Picture
25 ft
1.3 in

Straight canes with graceful foliage. This is the most widely used and "go to" bamboo for screening purposes due to upright neat tight canes, fast growing properties and cold hardiness. Can be planted in tight areas due to small footprint and easy manageability. Fair salt tolerance on beachside, except for direct oceanfront or excessive wind areas. Can be pruned as short as 6 feet if needed as with any hedge but easier due to fact that
when pruned above branches, doesn't keep getting taller while promoting lower branching.

Care of your new BAMBOO

From BOUNTIFUL EARTH

Call for appointment  -  386-299-8866

 

Choosing the right bamboo for your purpose:  With over 1500 varieties of bamboo, one can usually be found to fit most needs. (Such as privacy, garden focal point, decorative yard plant, wind barrier, bonsai, soil retention, ground cover, forest grove, food, building material, crafts, instrument making, just to name a few!).  Plants range from one foot ground covers to over one hundred foot giants, divided into two basic groups of running bamboo and non-invasive clumping bamboo.  Be particularly mindful of the temperature extremes in your area and choose your plant accordingly.  We have a minimum temperature field on our bamboo price list.  These temperatures are the point that the plant may loose some or all of it’s leaves and are not necessarily temperatures that will kill the plant unless exposed over a long period.

Most plants recover fully from brief cold spells. Growing three times faster than most woody plants, bamboo can fill your needs quickly and beautifully.  

Picking the desired location:  Most bamboos like sunny areas, although certain varieties can deal with some shade better than others.  Check to see if your bamboo can take shade, such as under a canopy of large trees.  Keep in mind that sun must still reach them for a portion of the day.  Bamboo likes to be in well-drained soil, kept moist but not sitting in water.  Bamboo can adapt to most soil types.  Extra sandy soil may possibly require the periodic addition of organic matter and possible extra fertilizer and water.  Bamboo has a strong will to live and will survive under most conditions but properly placed and given a little care, it will thrive!

Planting your bamboo:  Plantings are best done in the evening and not during the heat of day.  Dig a hole approximately twice the diameter and 50% deeper than the pot.  Place some potting soil (amended with organic matter, if desired) and mix with your soil in the bottom of hole to the depth of the bottom of plant.  Remove plant carefully from container.  If root bound, pull away and separate roots from sides and bottom of plant.  Place in hole with top of plant soil about the same level as ground surface.  Fill the rest of hole with potting soil mixed 50% with your soil.  Water plant liberally.  Use some of the excess dirt to build a small water retention wall around plant.  If possible, place mulch, a few inches thick, around plant to help with water retention and heat/cold protection. 

Care of bamboo:  Water plant daily (5 or 10 minutes with hose or 30 to 40 minutes with sprinkler until roots are wet) for a couple of weeks or more, if possible.  Once plant has been established happily in its new location, watering can be cut back to an “as needed” basis.  Of course, the amount of sun, heat, rain and soil type will ultimately determine your watering schedule.  Usually a deep watering once or twice per week is advisable in the Spring and Summer and less in the Fall and Winter months. When plant needs water, the leaves will fold inward similar to blades of grass, although some bamboos naturally do this in the heat of the day, so this method is not absolutely accurate but a guide.  Eventually, you will get to know the needs of your plants by simple observation.  Commercial fertilizers are ok.  At BOUNTIFUL EARTH, we use a slow release mixture of Osmocote Plus 15-9-12 (1 part), as well as Bayer Advanced Tree and Shrub systemic (1/4 part), available from Home Depot or Lowes.  Black Kow or composted horse manure are also greaty appreaciated by your bamboo for an anytime snack, which can simply be spread on ground on top of the plant area. Grass fertilizer mixes such as 6-6-6, are absorbed too quickly, and plant will be searching for more nutrients soon.  Slow release palm mixes are said to do ok as well as certain slow release ornamental mixes.  A good Florida schedule is the first of Sept., Dec., March., and June.  Plants will usually survive without all of this but a little care is needed to have them flourish and to be as hearty, large and healthy as possible.
