BEST SELLER - Taiwan Jade (Bambusa dolichomerithalla)
Well known for it's minimal leaf drop - Taiwan Jade is our BEST SELLER for pools and shared property fences!!
Taking on the Gracilis slender weaver in the medium screening category is the increasingly popular Taiwan Jade or B-Doli.
With vivid green culms/poles and prominent darker green striations on the underside of the leaf, the Taiwan Jade bamboo stands almost upright keeping it's clump tight and a thick green screen to hide those neighbours. The wide dark green leaves give a gorgeous contrast in gardens, and have very minimal leaf drop year-round compared with other species.
Young culms/poles are decorative with their white powdery bloom. A spectacular, tightly clumping specimen. Makes an excellent medium height living screen or feature plant.
