Bambusa vulgaris Wamin

(Dwarf Buddha Belly Bamboo)

Bambusa vulgaris Wamin, common name: Dwarf Buddha Belly Bamboo, is one of the more interesting bamboos because of its swollen internodes which look like a small round belly. The swelling is better achieved if the plant is left in a pot where it's under a bit of growing stress. This also enables you to bring it in during cold winter nights if you live in a marginal area.

Maximum height: 16 ft.

Maximum culm diameter: 3"

Minimum temperature: 29°F

Minimum USDA hardiness zone 9B

Most often used as a specimen plant because of its interesting appearance. Looks great beside a pond or in an Asian style garden.
