Barcode / Painted Bamboo
Bambusa Vulgaris c.v. Vittata
Another stunning plant displaying Australian national colours. Normally grows 12 metres plus. Tallawong' mother plant is enormous over 15 metres and 5 metres wide - provides a great deal of shelter from the prevailing wind. Vittata has a wide spreading rhizome structure, which means a large area can be covered. Wide 70-90mm yellow poles have a green striping, with a pending nature.
This bamboo is the only one here that makes the hollow sound and creaks when the wind blows....its gorgeous. Fast growing/drought tolerant. Dwarf by cultivating in a pot or planter. Ornamental rather than a good timber bamboo. For maintenance and growing tips please contact us.
