Buddha Belly

 

 
Bambusa ventricosa
 

Buddha Belly Bamboo is a highly ornamental plant. The resemblance of the swollen stem sections to the bulging belly of Buddha depicted in paintings and sculptures gives rise to the name of this bamboo. The swollen stems are usually seen when the plant is grown under stressful conditions. 

 

 In our garden with an abundance of water and nutrients it is the fastest growing and the most dense of any bamboo we grow, and it does not develope the bulging sections in these optimal conditions.

  • Height: 20'-30'
  • Diameter: 2 1/4”
  • Minimum Temp: 15o F
  • Sun or Partial Shade
  • Clumper
  • Best Bamboo for quick, dense, inpenetrable screen.
  • We will be happy to dig a cutting for you at anytime. Price will be determined by the number and size you request.  Dig and prepare your hole, bring a container or burlap to wrap it in, we will dig it on the day you request, take it home and plant it ASAP.  This is the easiest and most successfull way to transplant large amounts of bamboo, it is also less expensive for you as we don't have to buy dirt and containers and water it for 3 to 6 months before you buy it.
