Bamboo & Grasses
At the Boma, we have a wide range of bamboo that are ideal plants to add movement and sound to the landscape. The bamboo varieties we stock are happy in the ground or perfect for a container. Bamboo is often used to add height and privacy to parts of the garden. Besides Bamboo, we also have grasses that are both evergreen and herbaceous. Herbaceous grasses provide movement with their soft fluffiness and evergreen grasses offer year-round structure and interest.
About Bamboo & Grasses
Year-round bamboos add structure and height to the planting scheme in a small space.
Herbaceous grasses steal the limelight in late summer when planted with late-flowering perennials such as Crocosmia, Asters, Rudbeckia, Salvias, Kniphofia,
Evergreen grasses provide a year-round carpet of foliage that acts as a foil for other plants. Evergreen plants are important as the backbone of the landscape.
