Why use bamboo?
Bamboo is …
1. Pest Free & Evergreen. It consists largely of silica, which is not desirable to insects and inhibits diseases. Even deer find bamboo unpalatable. Most bamboos are ever- green in temperate climates.
2. Diverse & Adaptable. There are 70 genera and 2400 known species. Bamboo adapts as well in sandy soil as it does in clay. Heights range from 2 inches to 100 feet. Culms can be black, blue, yellow, pink, red, brown, or green. Leaves may be green, varie- gated green and white or green and yellow.
3. A Native Plant. There is one species that is native to the U.S.— Switch Cane Bamboo (Arundinaria gigantea), whose habitat is the Southeast region of the country. Some of us remember using switch cane for fishing poles when we were children.
4. Used Throughout the World. Bamboo is part of the fabric of every day life in Eastern cultures and in the Pan Americas. The shoots are used for food much the way we enjoy lettuce and tomato in a sandwich. Bamboo is used extensively as a construc- tion material and is still used as scaffolding in Asia. In America it is revered for its hardiness and evergreen elegance.
5. Bamboo is Edible. All bamboos are edible. The Phyllostachys are most commonly used for eating because the shoots are large in diameter. The best choice is Phyllostachys dulcis (Sweetshoot bamboo) which has a sweet, nutty flavor with no trace of bitterness.
6. Deer Resistant. Bamboo is made of silica which is not palatable to deer.
7. Two general catagories of bamboos Clumping and Running.

8. Bamboo is a great choice for your corporate commercial  office plant interiors.
