Bambusa vulgaris Wamin

Budda Belly Bamboo

This palm is exotic with unusual  bulging canes that make this a great additional  garden feature giviing an Asian tropical feel. Although we have classifed this in our ornamental shade tree category, Bambusa vulgaris Wamin, like all bamboo actually is a member of the grass family.  

Without a doubt we had to carry this because it is one of Brennan's favorites. 

"Bamboo is the fastest growing plant in the world, and thus annually renewable.  Some tropical species can grow four feet per day! It produces more oxygen than any other plant and consumes more carbon dioxide. Bamboo plants are very effective at removing metals and other toxic substances from soils and water.  Bamboo is stronger than steel – that's why more than 1 billion people worldwide live in a house made from bamboo. "
