Gigantochloa lutriostriata is a great smaller bamboo for either screening or as a smaller garden feature with nice large tropical looking leaves with a cream stiation.

It is very tight clumping at the base and very bushy at the top, forming a mushroom type shape. It is great for creating shade for underplanting or as a screen to block out 2-3 mtrs above the fence line.

Lipistick bamboo gets its name from the pink colouring of the new shoots, which are also edible!

We sell them in pot sizes:
140mm pots $27.50ea
200mm pots  $55ea
300mm pots  $132ea

The height and size of the actual bamboo in the pot varies with each species. For availability and any further information on sizing options and pricing, please call us on (07) 55 731 844 or email us at
