What You Need to Know about Dwarf Buddha Belly Bamboo
Surely you are familiar with Buddha, the spiritualist from whence the Dwarf Buddha Belly draws its name. If so, it should come as no surprise that these bamboos have an extended belly appearance.
The Dwarf Buddha Belly, or Bambusa vulgaris ‘Wamin’, originates from Burma and can reach 15 feet in height. While that doesn’t seem much like a dwarf size, this is actually one of the smaller bamboo varieties. It is fast growing, reaching maturity in about three years, and can handle temperatures as low as 28-30 degrees Fahrenheit.
The “belly” part of the bamboo occurs at its internodes on the 3-inch knotted culms. The inflated internodes give it a bizarre appearance and make it one of the best choices for specimen installations. Its unique look is a great centerpiece and conversation starter.
Thankfully, the Dwarf Buddha Belly is also one of the easiest bamboos to grow and maintain. It’s compact and unusual, is commonly found in tropical regions, and does quite well in USDA Zones 8 to 10, particularly in Florida and Southern California. However, if temperatures drop to 27 degrees Fahrenheit, there is the potential for damage to both canes or culms. But that damage won’t ruin the roots, so when warmer weather returns you will find new taller and thicker shoots appearing.
Planting in the spring is your best option because it gives the Dwarf Buddha Belly enough time to establish its root system before cooler weather returns. This bamboo variety makes an excellent addition to any landscape, and its beautiful green foliage is sure to draw attention.
