Alphonse Karr Bamboo Plants

Alternative Views:

• Alphonse Karr, Bambusa multiplex, bamboo grows variegated, bright yellow stalks with green pin-stripes. Alphonse Karr grows fast to 1 -2 inches in diameter, and poles up to 50 feet tall. Once the canes start sprouting in April, the bamboo rapidly forms dense clumps with watering, and the leaves of the Alphonse Karr bamboo develop rapidly once the pointed shoot emerges from the ground. Alphonse Karr striped bamboo was named in honor of the French botanist-novelist, of the nineteenth century, who admired this beautiful specimen plant of striped bamboo.

• This clumping bamboo plant is very popular, because of the beautiful striped bamboo canes that are used for furniture making. Dried poles of Alphonse Karr bamboo tree can be used ornamentally in handicrafts. When planted outside office or commercial buildings, the Alphonse Karr bamboo trees grows into a highly desirable tropical landscape, most of the growth takes place, beginning in April and lasting through the Summer. Grow your own clumping bamboo plants as a fast growing living privacy fence.

order of 7 6" plants April 22, 2015
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Springfield, MA United States  
Received my order today. The bamboo is beautiful! Bright yellow with green stripe. Some were a little taller than others but nonetheless they were alive and looked like they were freshly dug and carefully packaged. I was a little nervous after finding out about the bad reviews from other sites but I am happy with my order and am glad I took advantage of the 50% sale. Lined them up against my fence and am looking forward to seeing it fill in. Highly Recommend.

good value April 6, 2015
Reviewer: Jeff from Miami, FL United States  
I checked out some bamboo at a local nursery where the owner swore that I wouldn't find a better deal anywhere else; he seemed a little pricey so I came back home and searched the Internet; I found this bamboo for about a third of the price; ordered 4 of the 6" plants; they arrived within a few days, I planted them immediately and have been watering them plenty; 2 of the plants arrived as only bare stalks, but I can see the are sprouting leaves only a few days later; so far I am 100% satisfied and glad I did some Internet searching.

God and bad February 11, 2015
Reviewer: Lloyd Formby from Mobile, AL United States  
My bamboo arrived on time.  It was healthy.  It was well packaged.  Your price is reasonable.  What's not to love?  I have no experience planting bamboo.  I had questions.  The person who took my order had no answers.  He said instructions were included with the plants.  They weren't.

Great service December 29, 2014
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Lakeland, FL United States  
Arrived quickly, special packaging allowed me to wait a day or two before I planted, and transplant went very smoothly. Plants are doing well. I will definitely order from TyTy again.
