Special Attributes

One impressive bamboo, its fast growth rate, cold hardiness to -5° F, feather-like leaf pattern, and upright habit make the Henon Giant Grey Bamboo one of the finest choices for a grove or true bamboo forest. This stately giant is a highly adaptable and cold hardy variety with very erect olive green new canes that turn to a handsome and attractive dusty gray color with age. The 4 to 5 inch diameter canes can soar up to 50 feet or more in height to form a magnificent grove. Adaptable to most planting sites, Henon thrives in full sun to part shade, grows well in average to poor soil, and is known for its high drought tolerance once established. The wood is of high quality and used by many craftsmen.


Average Mature Height By USDA Zone

USDA Zone 7-11:  60 feet or more in height.

USDA Zone 6:  40 feet or more in height.

USDA Zone 5:  average 18 feet height with moderate top damage during winter




Cultural Preferences

Henon Giant Bamboo is easy to grow in most any moist but well-drained soil of average to even low fertility and full sun to part shade. During the first growing season after planting, water as needed to keep soil around the plants moist, but not soggy or wet. When established, Henon is very drought tolerant. 

Henon Giant Gray is a running bamboo, which means it spreads. Bamboo can be controlled in a small area (a normal city yard) simply by mowing or stepping on the young shoots. New shoots of this bamboo are edible and can also used for culinary purposes and cooked, much like asparagus. Keep in mind that running bamboo only puts up new shoots for a short time each year. When they are "shooting," the new plants are very fragile and easy to destroy. Root pruning or a Bamboo Root Barrier are other methods to control spread.
