The leaves consist of five, rarely three to seven, leaflets, at first pale green, then green with a silvery tinge due to slight pubescence. Winter-hardy. Drought-resistant, but does not tolerate dry air. Prefers rich, moderately moist soils. Photophilous, although it tolerates a small partial shade.
'Kobold'-Height 0.6-0.8 m, width 1.2 m, leaves are light green, flowers are rich yellow, medium-sized. The crown is thick. Leaves 2-3 cm long are compound, consist of 5 yellowish-green leaves, yellow in autumn. Flowering in May-October, flowers 3 cm in diameter. Prefers fertile light soils.

The main features of bamboos

Like all cereals, bamboos have a hollow stem - a lignified straw, the strength of which is directly related to the silica that saturates the cells. Bamboos are not capable of secondary growth: straws during one growing season, literally in 1-2 months, reach their maximum size in the culture, after which they do not thicken and do not increase in height.

These are monoecious rhizome evergreen (with partial leaf fall in spring) plants. Their height in culture ranges from 60 cm to 15-20 m (on average). Shoots formed in internodes, short, branched, grow in bunches. Leaves are often linear, vaginal. The fruit is a caryopsis, like all cereals.

Among them there are monocarpicsblooming once in a lifetime and after dying off (species of the genus bamboo), and polycarpicsregularly flowering and bearing fruit from a certain age (pseudosase). There are also transitional forms that bloom for several years in a row, and then their rhizomes partially die off (leaf grate, multiethnic). In culture, flowering is rarely observed.

Growing features

These are heat-loving plants. Under the conditions of the South Coast, the most winter-hardy are mainly rhizome bamboos, which actively grow in spring: leaf grate, saza, pseudosase and others. For them, shaded conditions and constantly moist soils are optimal, with respect to the fertility of which they are not capricious.In the more humid conditions of the Black Sea coast of the Krasnodar Territory (CPKK) there are more of them (28 species) in culture than on the South Coast of the Krasnodar Territory (9 species). In parks where large clumps are preserved, large-scale sanitary cutting of all old straws is often carried out, after which the bamboo is watered and fed (superficially, abundantly) with organic fertilizers.

Bamboos are propagated vegetatively in early spring: by cuttings - parts of the rhizome, solid lumps of which simply have to be cut out of the soil. It should be borne in mind: the adventitious roots are weak, and in the planting coma they are not enough to immediately provide the aboveground part of the plant with moisture. Therefore, often when planting bamboos, the leaves curl, wither, and the straw itself dies off. But you should not be upset, as soon new straws begin to grow.

A serious argument against when deciding to start bamboo on the site can be overgrowth in optimal conditions for it. Moreover, even such solid restraints as deep ditches, concrete underground walls, metal rings do not always bring the desired result. In my dacha, the least aggressive of all leaf graters is growing - L. black, the spread of which is restrained by a never-ending stream, is the most reliable natural barrier. Also, small isolated areas surrounded by wide concrete paths or areas are ideal for planting them. It should be replaced that this fly in the ointment - aggressive spread - does not interfere with the desire of real aesthetes,loving tree-like cereals, start them in their dachas.

In small areas, bamboos are used in small groups. They are harmonious in the design of the site in the Japanese style, they look good near a reservoir - a lake, a pond, a stream.

Leaf grates

Leaf grasses (Phyllostachys) are loose rhizome tree grasses with tall, relatively thin, strong straws, which are the most widespread in the culture of the South Coast and ChPKK.
