Chinese Dwarf Bambusa guangxiensis is a hedging clumping bamboo that grows to roughly 3-4mtrs in height. It grows very differently from traditional bamboo, with a very bushy, tufting habit with its foliage and does not naturally show the culms. Chinese Dwarf has quite pretty, large green leaves and gives a very tropical feel instead of a normal hedge. Chinese Dwarf is an extremely fast growing, hardy bamboo, and can achieve a privacy hedge in under 18 months! Provided you follow our Bamboo Planting Guide with soil preparation and care. Check out our testimonials page for a few different Chinese Dwarf before and after pictures.
Uses: Chinese Dwarf is definitely a fantastic privacy hedge, sound barrier and wind break. You can hedge it down to any preferred height and clean out the below foliage to create a japanese style effect! (See below photo).
Planting: Chinese Dwarf has a roughly 1.5m round circular clump BASE SIZE when fully grown, but can bush out to a full 3-4m in width purely in foliage density! For a dense hedge with low maintenence, plant your Chinese Dwarf 1m apart, or if room allows in the width, plant them 2m apart. If you are planting along a fence, come out a minimum of 1m to allow the natural clump size to grow. Follow our Bamboo Planting Guide given at the time of purchase for recommendations on the best soil preparation and care for your bamboo to achieve the quickest and best results (Just like our customers testimonials!).
