NARROW &
UPRIGHT BAMBOO

(Thyrsostachys siamensis)

Monastery 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.

 

Monastery is a narrow bamboo known for its upright growth habit. It is quite pretty with small leaves on short branches and a tight clumping footprint. It is suitable for narrow areas that require screening to a tall height - but it cannot compare to the speed and low maintenance of Gracilis which is the recommended screening species for narrow areas. Monastery has a very unique appearance. It is edible and the poles make for great construction due to how straight and thick walled they are.

Monastery is fairly quick growing and extremely low maintenance once established. It is also very drought tolerant, so perfect for acreage.

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.
