Mexican weeping bamboo is a clump forming (non invasive) bamboo with a graceful weeping habit and very fine foliage. Well suited to growing in the garden as a feature or as a screen Mexican Weeping Bamboo (Otatea acuminata ssp aztecorum) can also be grown in large pots or containers as a feature on a patio.
It will reach 5-6m in the garden usually less if grown in a pot or container. Also works well at the rear of the garden border as a backdrop for other plants. Growth rate is reasonably fast and it can put on more than 1m in 2 – 3 months
Grow in full sun to part shade, and use a root barrier if you wish to constrain growth. Fertilise in spring with an all purpose fertiliser.
Once established Mexican weeping bamboo is reasonably drought tolerant, however growth will be faster with a little water and fertiliser
