Grasses & bamboo make ideal additions to
many different planting schemes, including the exotic, cottage, and display
garden. They range in size, shape, colour, and growth rates and can create
a magnificent sculptural effect in the garden with little effort,. Relatively
work free, they are perfect for the low maintenenance garden, and
can add colourful shade to a patio or balcony.
||BAMBOOS - all sizes include the pot.
||Arrow Bamboo (Large Leaf) - Bambusa metake
The large leaved Bambusa metake is one of my favourite bamboos, with
it's lush olive green stems, and large, deep green leaves that keep
their colour over winter, giving a lush, green backdrop to any border or
screen. These large leaved Arrow Bamboos are perfect for the small
garden, with an average height in the UK climate of 7-8ft. They make an
excellent bamboo screen because of their dense foliage, and can
withstand temperatures as low as -24C.

|Black - Phyllostachys nigra
One of the most sought after Bamboos for instant screening, is the
spectacular BLACK bamboo, Phyllostachys nigra. Young stems ripen with
age turning jet black. Evergreen through the winter, this non-invasive
bamboo will provide a centrepiece for any garden, or use as a screen for
instant privacy in a small garden.
The dramatic black bamboo will enchant any garden design, from small
London patio planted in a tall, straight, steel pot to a country estate
planted in drifts to frame a sub tropical garden, to a classic English

||Green Hedging - Phyllostachys bissetti
Phyllostachys bissetii is an often hard to find bamboo, and a much
underused one. In our opinion at Silk Tree Nurseries, this is the BEST
bamboo for screening. It is vigorous, but not classed as invasive, it is
very hardy (down to -24C!), but it's best feature is that it grows many
culms (canes) that are densely packed to create a barrier, that is
difficult to penetrate (so ideal for security) and thick with foliage so
that you cannot see through it. This is a medium sized bamboo growing to
6-8metres, but can be pruned to any height.

yellow canes maturing throughout the season. This is a very hardy
bamboo, and our UK grown specimens have been through -10C , having
