Chusquea gigantea – CHGI




Live plants don’t like to be shipped so we don’t sell them online! We deliver and provide our planting, construction, removal and installation services to Northern California’s Bay Area region. Please call if you are interested in purchasing bamboo or working with us!




Another Chusquea new to the U.S., growing about 25′ tall and 1¾” inches in diameter with exceptionally long branches at 3-4½ feet. This plant is very big with an airy look, a delightful specimen plant but too open for screening. Shoots are pink-red and grow FAST! Culms stay wrapped in their sheaths for a longer time for an interesting look. Works well against a clear backdrop or standalone. Open clumper that “looks” like a runner!

Fun fact: Unlike most other bamboo/grass species, Chusquea genus canes are SOLID all the way through!
