In regard for garden design, bamboo works out as an excellent solitaire. Especially attractive on every one of these plants is their beautiful green foliage in winter times, as well as the movement of their slim stalks in the wind.
Bamboo is very resistant to cold climate. Their dense habit makes them stand out as a means of sight protection or hedge building in every garden. Another fine place for them are terraces or balconies, where they, as a tub plant, fit exceptionally into a Mediterranean atmosphere. Grown up, these plants can reach a height of three to four meters.
In general, bamboo and other grasses not only work as an ornamental variety in the gardens, but as renewable resources as well.
Micropropagated bamboo possesses an attractive, bushy habit at its time of sale.
