Plant Biography

From Sichuan Province in China this unusual clumping bamboo has a range of uses in contemporary gardens in the UK.

The species name ‘jiuzhaigou’ (pronounced ‘Ju-Zie-Gao’) translates to ‘the valley of nine villages’, a reference to a series of 9 old Tibetan villages that once inhabited the valley.

Grow it as a stand-alone specimen either in the ground or in a pot or planter, along the back of a border where it will provide an effective, dense, noise-reducing screen, or even as a hedge which can easily be trimmed to the preferred size and shape.

Excellent healthy specimen. Arrived extremely well packaged for protection during transit (as usual with this company). I bought this when on offer, but would have been happy to pay full price. Will be buying more of them while they are on offer. Excellent service.

Super fast delivery, very well packed. Would have liked a few more canes but nevertheless, still a very beautiful and delicate bamboo. Thanks.

Lawrence Chong

Great service. Great plant. Ordered largest size in 45litre pot so I had instant mature specimen. Glad I did. My gardener had to dig a massive hole to plant it in and he commented on excellent quality plant which was not root bound. Many thanks
