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.

Took a while to arrive May 21, 2016
Reviewer: Joseph Gonzalez from Leesburg, VA United States  
I thought the quality of the product was good. Everything seemed well packaged and taking care of for its shipment from the west coast to the East Coast.. my only complaint is why it took so long to arrive at my door. Maybe when placing the order I may have missed a description of its stating could take for five weeks or possibly longer to arrive. If that's the case then that is my fault. Otherwise I'm happy with the product and yes I would purchase from TyTy again. For my next order I just need to remind myself to place it much sooner when getting ready to plan for the season.

50-50 May 12, 2016
Reviewer: Alex from Athens, GA United States  
I bought 3 of : Alphonse Karr Bamboo - 6in. wide shoot clump (up to 6ft tall)

and

3 of : Alphonse Karr Bamboo - 8in. wide shoot clump (up to 6ft tall)

8in. wide items were fine - indeed up to 6ft, one or two probably even a bit taller (thumbs up!). However, 6in. wide items were not even close to 6ft. More like 4ft. So be prepared that depending on how wide clump you buy, they might be - on the basis of my order - somewhere between a bit over 6ft and 4ft. I hope this was informative review.

1 of 3 was wrong plant type April 27, 2016
Reviewer: Jeffrey Olson from Cataula, GA United States  
Of the three alphonse karr plants I ordered, one of the 6" plants was not an alphonse karr plant.  It didn't look anything like the other four plants I ordered on this shipment or another I made in the past.  I did not plant it since I couldn't identify the plant species.  I've been meaning to contact you about a replacement, but I haven't got around to it yet.

Bamboo March 12, 2016
Reviewer: Christopher Goetz from The Woodlands, TX United States  
Bit soon to write a review.
the 3 6" bamboo clumps seem small. One is very small with only 2 stands of bamboo that did not look as healthy as the other two

time will tell.
