Variegated Temple is a rare, premium designer bamboo for high-end landscaping. It is in high demand, with a limited quantity available. Only a few people in Australia have this in their gardens!

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.
