LIPSTICK

VARIEGATED 
CANOPY BAMBOO

(Gigantochloa luteostriata)

Lipstick 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.

 

Lipstick is a feature bamboo for those that want to create a shady environment for planting with a tropical look. It features a wide canopy shape, and can be topiaried for great effect. It has a deep green culm and white and green variegated leaf. It tends to looks best with a yearly trim and clean out, to emphasise its beautiful shape. Without trimming it can fill out with foliage and lose the distinctive shape.

Lipstick is fairly quick growing and low maintenance once established. It is also very drought tolerant, but looks best with consistent watering.

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.
