MOSO

BEST FOREST &
GROVE BAMBOO

(Phyllostachys pubescens)

Moso is an ornamental running bamboo, the best choice for growing a forest or grove. Moso will naturally grow between 10-12mtrs tall. It can be trimmed down in height if necessary, though looks best left natural.

It has a vertical growth habit with minimal branches and foliage down low. The natural spread of a running bamboo has no limit, so they are wonderful for creating groves or forests in acreage or large blocks. They are not recommended for planting uncontained in suburbia. Moso is the best choice for a walk through grove or open spaced runner for dam or creek wall stability and to prevent soil erosion.

 

The best way to plant Moso out is to cultivate the soil around 50cm deep in the entire area you wish it to grow. Using some machinery to turn over the soil surface is best, allowing the soil structure to be open and more pliable for the rhizomes to grow through. For more information, talk to one of our helpful and knowledgable staff members for professional advice on your garden circumstances. Different circumstances have different solutions!

Moso is quick growing and can be a fully grown grove within 3-5 years, but this completely depends on the initial establishment and soil it is planted into. Moso is low maintenance & extremely drought tolerant once established. Cleaning out the older smaller stems as the new thicker shoots grow through it will achieve a more open grove look.

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.

 

Note: This is the species they used in the filming of Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon!

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.
