A very popular species, Gracilis is great for screening out tall buildings or for providing a wind / noise break. At 8m height, it is a fairly large-growing variety. Unlike other varieties of a similar height, Gracilis produces thin canes, up to around 4cm. This makes it less overbearing and much easier to maintain.
Gracilis will maintain a dense cover of foliage in most areas around Brisbane. However, like most species, some leaf loss is to be expected in winter. This varies a lot depending on location and microclimate.
Low. Remove spent canes as necessary. Bamboo generally produces significant leaf mess. Remove if required or retain as natural mulch. Use quality fertilizer such as Troforte or Organic Link to maintain vigorous growth.
