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.

Reviewer: Sharon Hughes from CLAXTON, GA United States  
Ordered 15 Alphonse Karr Bamboo plants. They arrived quickly and nicely packaged.  We planted  almost immediately and  they seem to be taking to their new home. So far I couldn't be happier.....

Bamboo Shipment/Order March 15, 2017
Reviewer: KP from Fleming Island, FL United States  
The order arrived in good health and timely. After planting the bamboo, it seems to be taking to the location just fine and again appears healthy and just getting established. The planting directions included in the packing slip were clear and helpful.

Good source of clumping bamboo February 17, 2017
Reviewer: Jeffrey Olson  
Third time that I've ordered clumping bamboo varieties from TyTy and, like the other times, I had no problems receiving the product in a timely manner and it looked pretty good.  Of the nine bamboo plants I planted last year, only one didn't make it to this year.

The Source for Bamboo October 11, 2016
Reviewer: David Cifu from Richmond, VA United States  
This is my second order from TyTy for Bamboo. It's not easy to get quality bamboo of any variety either in-person (nurseries) or on-line. TyTy has it all, with terrific variety, sizes, and price ranges. The plants arrive as promised, on-time and ready to plant. I had to delay my order due to some traveling I was doing and the customer service folks were all over it with a simple email. The selection, price and service are right. Don't waste your time looking all over or elsewhere, just order from TyTy. put them in the ground and's the way a business should be run. [n.b.: I received absolutely nothing in return for writing this! Just trying to save y'all time and effort]
