Develops a very dense grove, with strongly upright, closely spaced culms. Excellent hedge or screen. Culms are fast- growing, smooth, and shiny. Some culms show a crook, referred to as “genuflection”, near the base (see description of Phyllostachys aureosulcata). Wood is considered to be of the highest quality, exceptionally strong and suited to a wide variety of uses. Shoots are described as being free of acrid taste and delicious, among the best in quality. Cold-hardy to about -5 F.
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.
