Much like the species, above, except in size. Also, the culms sometimes develop a distinctive white, waxy coating. This selection has proven to be one of the most cold hardy bamboo species we have tested here. After being exposed to a temperature of -16° F, the leaves were killed, but the wood and many of the buds survived, so the culms leafed out, at least partially, in spring. Well suited for use as a hedge or screen.
We can only ship bamboo plants up to 5-7′ tall. Additionally, depending on the stage of growth of the plants, often in late June when new growth hardens off, we can offer taller sizes for local pickup or delivery.
If we receive an order for taller sizes without an e-mail about pickup or delivery, we will ship 5-7′ tall plants and issue a refund for the difference.
Note: For quantity or wholesale pricing, or if you need to schedule a delivery or wish to pick up plants at the farm (whenever possible, it is preferable to pick up plants here at the farm so we can dig huskier rootballs), e-mail us at: Info@tripplebrookfarm.com.
