Alphonse Karr Bamboo Plants

Alternative Views:

&bul;   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.

&bul;   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.

Fast service/shipping. Good looking plants May 7, 2017
Reviewer: mark mills from tyrone , PA United States  
I placed an order for two types of bamboo in April and received an email when to expect shipping. Bamboo arrived on time and well packaged. The bamboo looked in excellent condition and was a six inch clump and 6 feet tall. I have other bamboo from another internet greenhouse order on my property that was started from a six inch plant that is now about a 15 foot radius 3 years later. I hope I have the same growers luck with this. So far so good as it has been in the ground two days now.
