Bamboo – Brisbane, Gold Coast and Rural QLD
In Brisbane, The Gold Coast and through most of Queensland spring is a good time to plant bamboo. It is important to look at varieties that are suited to the sub tropical to tropical climate before you do plant.
For example many of the Himalayan bamboos do not perform that well in Brisbane unless they are planted in a cool shaded position.
Clumping bamboos are the most widely used, and even with these some gardeners prefer to put in a root barrier. A number of species are widely used in Queensland including Dendrocalamus minor var amoenus or ‘Ghost Bamboo’ and the ever popular Bambusa textilis gracilis. We like ‘China Gold’, Bambusa eutuldoides var viridi-vittata with its wonderful yellow culms.
Most supplier can provide plants as potted specimens in a range of pot sizes, bamboo is also sold bare rooted offsets, the culms are cut back and the plants are sold ready to plant for spring growth.
