Growers of bamboo, unusual plants and trees and breeders of pedigree livestock

The Rodings Plantery Bamboo

Welcome to our new bamboo list. Some plants have disappeared from our availability and others have appeared as either more suitable or simply because we like them and wanted to add to the collection here. We keep around 180 species and cultivars now in our own personal collection.

Quite a few of the bamboo are only here as stock plants and anything rare or unusual is propagated to order. Useful plants for screening, hedging and containers are generally widely available. We do not have baskets to put plants into and ask that you either email jane@therodingsplantery.co.uk or call 01279 876421 to check if we have the plants ready to go.

We always give honest, reliable advice and if a certain bamboo is not the best ‘doer’ for your position we will tell you and advise of something suitable.
 
As rule of thumb prices start around £34.99 unless otherwise stated on the list below.
 
We can make recommendations for your situation. There is normally a bamboo for any circumstance and they will enhance any garden. Certain bamboo, although in regular demand by collectors, are renowned for being exceptionally difficult to propagate and get going. Ph.Harbin, Ph.Kawadana being prime examples. Other beautiful ornamentals will not take extreme temperatures so please ask our advice.
 
There are so many beautiful Bamboo plants so don’t hesitate to get in touch if you would like to plant some in your garden or as part of a design or planting project. We also offer a planting service through our own Landscape Company AGM Landscapes here at The Rodings Plantery.
 
ACIDOSASA Gigantean £44.99+
ANTHROSTYLIDIUM ‘NAIBUNSE’ In our collection only –not for sale- a climbing neotropical.
BAMBUSA Multiplex 'Alphonse Karr'- no longer available as this is not hardy in our climate but suited to indoors, a conservatory or the like.
BAMBUSA Vulgaris 'Vittata' Same as above
BASHANIA Fargesia-although this is supposedly being reclassified as Semiarundinaria Fastuosa we are keeping these as separate species as the growth habit is so different-we shall wait and see what the Botanists have to say! In our opinion as plant growers and planters of landscape projects these are 2 entirely different plants for different circumstances. ‘Fastuosa’ being the excellent choice for screening and hedging! Our own Bashiania planted here has taken over a huge area.
BASHIANIA Quingchenengshanensis £44.99+
 
BORINDA:
Please Note: Borindas are also listed as Fargesias. Again the Jury is out on some of these so please take it read that you may find these listed in other places under the family Fargesia but these will be the same Bamboo. Many companies now label all Borindas under Fargesia but we have left ours where there are for the time being.
