A green culmed, small leafed bamboo with strong near solid culms. Originates from the Arnhem Land in the Northern Territory. Traditionally used by the Aboriginal people for didgeridoo making etc.
This is the most common black bamboo, and with good reason - the glossy black culms with green striations make this bamboo a fantastic feature plant.
Nice looking plant which produces timber which dries to an unusual mottled pattern of brown spots spread over the whole culm. Used extensively in Indonesia for furniture making, where the timber is usually referred to as 'Tiger Bamboo'.
A nice bamboo with straight strong (near solid) culms and edible shoots. It has a very tight clumping growth habit and slightly weeping tops with lush foliage. Some of the culms may have a cream striation on the lower inter-nodes.
A very hardy and fast growing bamboo which forms dense upright clumps. Good for windbreaks and privacy screens and produces great edible shoots.
This is a 'Gracilis' look-a-like, but larger. Smooth green culms and tidy, upright growth habit makes it a great alternative to the popular Gracilis.
A beautiful straight, thin walled ornamental bamboo. The Glabra is much like the Textilis, but with more predominant white on the lower parts of the internodes giving the plant a stripy appearance.
Yellow culms with green striations and cream striped leaves. Being related to the Ventricosa (Buddha's Belly), this bamboo has the potential to develop the short swollen internodes, but it tends to be quite rare and only in certain growing conditions.
Striated form of D. Brandisii. A beautiful bamboo with good timber and edible shoots. Green culms with yellow striations, large leaves, and slightly arching culms.
A large bamboo with small leaves, and a very branchy and bushy growth habit. The culms are erect with weeping tops. The small leaves gives it a 'fluffy' appearance which makes it look great when viewed from a distance.
Great timber and edible shoots. An attractive bamboo due to its unusual rusty orange culms and large leaves. This bamboo flowered gregariously in 2005. All plants sold now are from the seedlings.
Put simply...if you want black, then the Java Black is the best. The sooty black culms and large lush leaves make this bamboo a spectacular feature plant. It is quite a large bamboo, so best suited to large blocks of land and acreage. Great timber.
A good timber bamboo with straight green culms and black striation. (Java black in reverse). One of the best timber bamboos for furniture making.
Beautiful light green culms and soft fine-leafed foliage. Needs good growing conditions and well drained soil in order to grow well. The new shoots are among the best for eating, so good in fact, that they can be eaten raw.
A beautiful ornamental. The culms sheaths tend to stay attached to the culms which gives the bamboo a stripy appearance. The timber is thin walled and straight.
Tight clumping ornamental with very fine leaves and edible shoots. Very erect. The solid or near solid culms makes it a good timber bamboo. This clone is much like Clone 1, except larger and more erect.
