WANTED: Drakensberg Bamboo (Thamnocalamus tesselatus)


Per chance I found you website ! I am looking for so long for a Thamnocalamus tesselatus (Drakensberg Bamboo), the Botanical Gardens are all propagating for years,the indegenous nurseries don’t have it and overseas one can buy them. It’s tragic !

Hi there,

I have seen this bamboo growing wild along the river about 1km before the Highmoor camping site in the drakensberg mountains close to Rosetta. It looks easy enough to propagate via root division and there are plenty of them around. Hope this helps.
