A customer from NC, Lexington Home Brand , used our 2" x 8' polished black poles in a recent home show display. The Bambusa family is comprised of many species, but a few of the more widely planted bamboo varieties in the U.S. are Bambusa multiplex varieties, commonly known as 'Hedge Bamboo.' The primary species are Bambusa multiplex 'Alphonse Karr', Bambusa multiplex 'Golden Goddess', and Bambusa multiplex 'Weeping Willow' bamboo. These clumping bamboo species are, like the running bamboo, not particular concerning soil type and the amount of sunlight required. Clumping bamboo trees are planted for use as tall hedges, privacy screens, windbreaks, or for their ornamental beauty. I personally like the look of worn bamboo, so I did not replace any of the poles.

Later Swedish steel and Aluminum poles became more fashionable but serious vaulters continued to search for poles with more flexibility. In the late 1950s, the sport saw the first flexible vaulting poles manufactured with fiberglass and/or carbon fiber. This is one of the major advantages of the fiberglass poles over their bamboo and metal predecessor's.

A circular cap may be created and placed on top of the center poles on the outside to keep out rain. Afterwards, place a bamboo pole between them in a horizontal manner for additional support on the trellis. In the context of a tropical tiki bar, it's practical to use thatch to cover a sun umbrella or palapa (a type of roofed structure held up by four or more poles but without any walls, intended for giving shade). If you properly season the bamboo to protect it from wind and water, you can have an outdoor tiki bar to use in your backyard.

Vietnamese culture is regarded as bamboo culture, an old saying going 'when bamboo is old, the new bamboo sprouts appear' symbolising the regeneration of a culture. The cable being used was made from split bamboo or by twisting whole clumps of pliable bamboo together. The walls are made of split and woven bamboo and the slats and poles of bamboo are used as the support. Bamboo stalks are decorated and used as poles.These are used to surround the stairs of shrines and temples to warn of evil. I didn't know of the different types of bamboo and certainly had never heard of black bamboo until now. I'm fond of bamboo and have a bit of it in my own garden here in Ireland, of all places.

So - with this drought - here are some easy strategies to keep your bamboo happy and while using water wisely. Bamboo can survive in a drought, it just takes a deeper understanding of the plant and its needs, coupled with common-sense water efficiency practices that apply really to any type of landscape circumstance. Use these recommendations and your bamboo will be happy and healthy in its new home above the ground. The short answer is 'yes.' Bamboo is such a diverse family of plants, originating from climates as cold as northern China to the warm jungles of Central America, an everything in between, including the Sacramento area.
