Additional Information About Bamboo Shibataea lancifolia


Lancifolia is a unique and vigorous shrub or groundcover bamboo that forms a clump up to 7 feet tall. Great for a low, soft-looking border, screen, hedge or for erosion control. A beautiful bamboo with bright green leaves that are longer and narrower than others of this genus. It prefers part shade, preferably in th afternoon.

Shibataea lancifolia is a running bamboo, which means it spreads. This variety is a moderate to slow spreader so is easily controlled by mowing or stepping on the young shoots that emerge one time a year in spring. Keep in mind that running bamboo only puts up new shoots for a short time each year, and when they are "shooting", the new plants are very fragile and easy to destroy. Root pruning, a Bamboo Root Barrier or growing plants in above- or below-ground containers are other methods to control spread.

Gardener Direct also carries Bamboo fertilizer and planting soil containing Biochar, a highly porous material that allows for long term water and nutrient holding capabilities.
