The Slender Weaver’s Bamboo
The Graceful Bamboo
Bambusa textilis gracilis
This clumping bamboo is possiblly the ideal bamboo for the residential landscape. Its tight clumping nature and upright habit make it suitable for spaces too small for many larger species. This bamboo produces many canes that are very closely spaced and the foliage remains full from top to bottom.
The Slender Weaver’s Bamboo grows 25′-30′ tall, so it’s tall enough to screen a two story house, but not too large to grow out of scale with the residential landscape. This plant is hardy to 18° F.
