Bamboo Phyllostachys Atrovaginata 15 Litre: Also known as Green Perfume or Incense bamboo. The perfume and incense names derive from the characteristic sandalwood like scent it emits from the new culms, particularly when they are touched. This bamboo has adapted itself for living in wet or boggy conditions by having air canals in the rhizomes and root system, which makes it a excellent choice for boggy and wet ground. This bamboo develops extremely quickly from a young plant with new culms being a rich lush green.
What to expect: Your pant will arrive in a 15 litre/32cm pot. It will contain approximately 8 to 10 Culms, the tallest of which will be a minimum of 200cm. It will look exactly like the picture.

It can be positioned just about anywhere in the garden, as we touched on above this plant is the perfect choice for very wet, even boggy ground, as well as normal areas of the garden.
