Description

Khasia (Drepanostachyum khasianum) grows to around 3-4mtrs in height and has a very pretty weeping habit, with fine leaves and a petite form. The distinct white and purple rings around the internode are a pretty feature of the slender culms. This species would prefer some shade in the warmer climates of Australia, but would be fine in full sun in cooler areas.


Uses: Khasia is definitely a feature bamboo in softer, lush gardens. It is great for underplanting to create a garden effect. It looks particularly lovely combined with bali huts or the like. 


Planting: Khasia has a natural base size of 1m wide but fans out with arching culms, so allow for a 3m span of foliage. Plant at 1m spacings for a screen. 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.

Recommendations are based on an average garden, please speak to a professional for advice on your particular circumstances.
