Buddha Belly

55' tall, 3" dia culms, good to 18 degrees Fahrenheit

Some forms are dwarf with swollen internodes and used for potted plants, bonsai or small specimens, while others revert to a giant form. This is a very drought hardy as well as wet tolerant plant once established. The giant form is an incredible sight to behold. Huge weeping growth habit requires a large planting area. This plant can quickly become the largest plant mass in a landscape in as few as 5 years under ideal growing conditions!
