pseudosasafoltjaponica

240 x indefinite (600 x indefinite)

Bolt upright, arching at the top. The most widely planted bamboo. The foliage clings to the culm over many years. Invasive, so needs room to spread - control spreading growth by planting in 2 feet depth and width concrete lined trench. Tends to habit of flowering massively, taking several years to regain its former glory.

Grow in a deciduous woodland or wild garden, or as screening/ hedging (3 feet between each plant). When planted as a windbreak, the rustle of the leaves creates a soothing noise.

Sasa veitchii

Pale Green with White bloom, fading to pale Straw Colour

sasacanetveitchii

Dark Green. First cold snap creates White margins. Then the leaves become twisted and curled to provide a variegated effect.

sasafoltveitchii

48 x indefinite (120 x indefinite)

Invasive, so needs room to spread and use physical barriers. Valuable medium height ground cover plant and weed suppressor, whose pseudo-variegation is a winter bonus. Useful for stabilizing banks. Grow in big clumps for most impact, or as a small hedge.

Pale Green

sinarundinariafolt

Website Structure Explanation and User Guidelines

 

The Society was formed by Michael Hirsh in 1985, and was called The Bamboo Network. It amalgamated with other European societies in 1986, and was renamed The European Bamboo Network in order to differentiate it from the Australian Bamboo network. In 1989, the European Bamboo Network reverted to its former regional basis, and the British society was renamed The Bamboo Society (EBS Great Britain). The Society is affiliated to The Royal Horticultural Society.

when I do not have my own or ones from mail-order nursery photos , then from March 2016, if you want to start from the uppermost design levels through to your choice of cultivated and wildflower plants to change your Plant Selection Process then use the following galleries:-

  • Create and input all plants known by Amateur Gardening inserted into their Sanders' Encyclopaedia from their edition published in 1960 (originally published by them in 1895) into these
    • Stage 1 - Garden Style Index Gallery,
      then
    • Stage 2 - Infill Plants Index Gallery being the only gallery from these 7 with photos (from Wikimedia Commons) ,
      then
    • Stage 3 - All Plants Index Gallery with each plant species in its own Plant Type Page followed by choice from Stage 4a, 4b, 4c and/or 4d REMEMBERING THE CONSTRAINTS ON THE SELECTION FROM THE CHOICES MADE IN STAGES 1 AND 2
    • Stage 4a - 12 Bloom Colours per Month Index Gallery,
    • Stage 4b - 12 Foliage Colours per Month Index Gallery with
    • Stage 4c - Cultivation, Position, Use Index Gallery and
    • Stage 4d - Shape, Form Index Gallery
    • Unfortunately, if you want to have 100's of choices on selection of plants from 1000's of 1200 pixels wide by up to 16,300 pixels in length webpages, which you can jump to from almost any of the pages in these 7 galleries above, you have to put up with those links to those choices being on
      • the left topic menu table,
      • the header of the middle data table and on
      • the page/index menu table on the right of every page of those galleries.
