Bambusa Metake, or Arrow Bamboo, is a modern-looking, vigorous, tough, fast-growing, evergreen bamboo. It has an attractive, dense, upright habit and large foliage. Long, wide, shiny, bright green leaves cover the plant almost entirely. The cane is olive green and turns pale brown as the plant matures. It grows well in any type of soil, even nutritionally poor, as long as it is well-drained, but prefers moist soil. Very adaptable and undemanding, it can grow in full sun, partial shade, or full shade. Resilient to winds and cold temperatures. Very adaptable and tolerant of clipping. Bambusa Metake is notably elegant and decorative. It is impressive as a standalone plant, but it can also be used for hedging and screening. It looks great when planted near or along watercourses. Easy to grow in pots and containers. Suitable for growing in coastal areas.

Arundel Arboretum is a shrub and tree retail nursery with over 40 years of experience.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
