Graceful bamboo is one of the best plants for Central Florida. It is very upright and can fit into smaller spaces while still providing a good screen for privacy. It can also be hedged and kept at a shorter height or boxed to give a more architectural look. This is also one of my favorites for tea and shoots. It gets to be around 20′ tall depending upon conditions with a culm diameter around 1″. A fast grower with beautiful leaves this plant will fit in almost any backyard without taking up the whole space.
We sell the plants typically in 5-7 gallon size field clumps and they look like stalks to begin with but leaf out very quickly and will provide a nice screen within a year. The spacing is 3-5′ on center – the closer you plant them the more immediate the effect.
