'Weaver's Bamboo' adds style to a modern LA area building
Sometimes when you have a 'garden moment', an inspiration, that one mix of plant material with hardscape or against the right building, it just speaks to you. This picture does just that for me.
Lately, I have grown to really appreciate Bambusa textilis 'Weaver's Bamboo' for it lush green coloring, upright stature and its clean open look. It looks like a classic running bamboo, but it is a non-invasive clumper. Names so for its thin culm walls that can be used for basket-weaving and other weaving crafts.
Paul, a Bamboo Geek blog reader, asked me to ID this plant and in exchange he gave me permission to show off this photo taken of a hedge of 'Weaver's Bamboo' taken in the Los Angeles area, used against a modern whitewashed building.
If this doesn't show off LA style, I'm not sure what does.... beautiful.
Never fear... it looks just as beautiful in our warm, sunny Sacramento landscapes as well!
