Gigantochloa Wrayii_3_2Gigantochloa wrayii

Originally from Malaysia, this very vertical bamboo (usually around 20 – 25 feet tall) has foliage pretty much all the way to the ground.  With its tight footprint, Wrayii makes a great privacy screen or living fence.

We don’t have a good photo of it yet – this is the only one we’ve found that shows it as a hedge, but the plant itself is very attractive with large, dark green leaves; a compact and upright plant

We think it has a great future for privacy screens on smaller residential lots and hope to get a better photo up soon.
