Common name

Moso bamboo



Minimum temperature

-20 degC


The largest bamboo outside the tropics, with stems up to 25 cm in diameter and 28 meters high. The species is originally from China and Taiwan, and is known for it’s edible shoots and the use of the fiber in the textile industry. The bamboo is hardy up to -20 degC, although some damage can occur during the winter. Because the plant easily recovers in the spring, it is a very suitable plant to grow in the garden. In most gardens the stems will not reach a height of 28 meters, but will still be a very beautiful and decorative bamboo of considerable size. A sunny spot would be ideal, and give the bamboo plenty of water.
