Gracilis bamboo, scientifically classified as Bambusa textilis gracilis, the best selling bamboo for screening in Melbourne. Prized for its tidy clumping bamboo growth habit. Unlike many running bambusa varieties that can spread aggressively, bamboo gracilis in Melbourne spreads slowly and only within the confines of its elegant clumps. Each year slender green/blue-hued culms emerge gracefully from the dense central crown while delicate underground rhizomes extend outwards just a few centimetres.

This restrained rhizome growth is what gives gracilis bambusa its excellent suitability for landscape and garden use without risk of invasion into surrounding areas. At Red Cloud Bamboo, we offer a choice of bamboo gracilis textilis varieties to meet varying design needs through their attractive mature form and compact growth.

Gracilis “Slender Weavers Bamboo”

Beyond its desirable growth habit, gracilis bamboo is admired for its elegant features likened to “slender weavers bamboo.” Narrow green culms typically arch upward reaching up to 5 meters tall yet maintain a slender profile under 5 centimetres wide resembling fine threads woven together. Their vertical canes emerge from lacey branching patterns within the clump forming a natural bamboo textile like scene similar to slender weavers bamboo.

In warmer months thin striped leaves cloak the lax culms adding gentle movement with every breeze portraying a natural bambusa grazing scene. Even in winter, bamboo gracilis retains an airy presence in the landscape bearing witness to its inherent “slender weavers bamboo” like qualities of strength and flexibility. Its flexibility allows culms to bend without breaking under snow or high winds, showcasing gracilis bambusa’s endearing ability to resemble slender weavers bamboo yet withstand the seasons when sourced from our trusted nursery.
