Bambusa textilis (Weaver's Bamboo) - An extremely handsome clumping bamboo from China that arches gracefully at the tops of its 30-40 feet tall and 2 inches wide culms. The thin-walled culms, without branches on the lower half, provide for long straight culms of medium-wall thickness that are used for weaving and furniture. Culm growth occurs in summer with new culms having a light bluish cast before maturing to a pale green. Evergreen to 13 degrees F and thought to be root hardy below 0 degrees F. Plant in full sun. Native to the Guangxi & Guangdong Provinces in South-east China. This is an excellent bamboo for use in a specimen planting or planted as a tall hedge. The plant pictured on our website is in the bamboo garden of Paul and Denise Stefanson in La Mesa, CA. Photo courtesy of Ralph Evans of Botanical Partners.  This information is based on research conducted about this plant in our nursery library and from reliable online sources. We also take into consideration observations of it in our nursery of crops, as well as of plants growing in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens we have visited. We will incorporate comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if it includes cultural information that would aid others in growing Bambusa textilis.
