Outstanding Features

Fast growing in just about any soil type or environmental condition. Oldhamii is a medium sized upright clumping bamboo. It has medium sized deep green foliage that starts low on the culms. The tall upright culms grow straight and strong making it a popular variety for many different horticultural and agricultural applications. Both the timber and the shoots are popular for construction and human consumption purposes.

Product Description

As a tall hedge or screen, or standalone in any suburban yard, Oldhamii is a great choice that won’t let you down. Its tall smooth green culms turn gold over time when subjected to sunlight. Oldhamii is one of our most popular varieties and is often purchased in bulk numbers. It is great for creating fast growing paddock dividers for orchids that has the added benefit of providing a sustainable value add for the property. It is also being used in the filtration process of modern waste water recirculation systems implemented in new housing development projects.
