Bambusa rigida

Elegant, upright and compact, this has become one of our most favorite plants.

A very lovely single specimen or hedge/privacy screen.

Great at the ocean or the mountains, this bamboo is best described as a smaller version of our all time favorite, Weaver’s Bamboo (Bamboo textilis).

In China, where this is originally from, it’s commonly described height is listed at 20-25 feet.

Ours is a bit taller.  With sufficient rainfall, we think 30′-35′ is not unrealistic.

If the real textilis (Weaver’s Bamboo) is too tall for you this is a fabulous alternative.

Does extremely well in winds.
