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.

We also have incorporated comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from those who may have additional information, particularly if this information includes cultural information that would aid others in growing Bambusa textilis.
