NEW GUINEA GREEN

FINE LEAFED

ORNAMENTAL BAMBOO

(Nastus elatus)

New Guinea Green 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.

 

New Guinea Green is a fine leafed weeping bamboo. It is quite pretty and tends to grow slightly asymmetrical in a unique way. It is suitable for semi-shade gardens where it thrives and looks lush, but it can also live in full sun conditions. New Guinea Green is edible and is actually one of the only species that can be eaten raw! You could use the poles for light arts and crafts.

New Guinea Green is fairly quick growing and extremely low maintenance once established. It is also very drought tolerant, but it looks much lusher and fuller 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.
