DWARF OLDHAMII

TWO STOREY

SCREENING BAMBOO

(Bambusa oldhamii 'Dwarf')

Dwarf Oldhamii is a part of our unique & unusual bamboo range of which we have a small selection available. These beautiful species of bamboo are not the popular types that sell on mass, but rather the specialised rarer varieties for bamboo enthusiasts and collectors.

 

Dwarf Oldhamii is a new species as the dwarf version of the acreage bamboo Oldhamii. It is much shorter and much smaller in the footprint, with the same large green leaf and bushy effect.

Dwarf Oldhamii is great for screening when you want a short bamboo (trimmed short) with a big leaf. It is suitable for acreage or garden beds of at least 1.5mtrs wide, not narrow areas. Dwarf Oldhamii gives you something a little different to Gracilis and Goldstripe, the most popular screening species, with a chunkier stem and larger leaf. It also acts as a great wind and sound barrier. 

Dwarf Oldhamii is fairly quick growing and extremely low maintenance once established. It is drought tolerant, but looks best with regular water.

Follow our bamboo planting guide (provided with your purchase) to achieve the best results. The guides are helpful and easy to follow, and assist you in achieving the best results in the shortest amount of time. Most of the effort in growing your bamboos is preparation and the first few months after planting.

The approximate size of bamboo is only a guide. Plant measurements are taken from the bottom of the pot. 

The sizing of plants does vary, particularly through different seasons of the year.

The most valuable part of the bamboo is the rootball size within the pots, which produces incredibly fast growth once planted.
Stock availability, pricing and sizing are subject to change without notice. For more information, please contact us directly.
