Java Black by Magee

Bamboo is the Chinese symbol for longevity, because of its durability, strength, flexibility and resilience.

It survives in the harshest conditions, and seems to endure through all the brutalities mother nature can dish out, still standing tall, and staying green year round. Its flexibility and adaptability are a lesson to us all, that the secret of a long happy life, is to go with the flow.

Feng Shui practitioners recommend putting bamboo plants in the front of your home to assure long life for all those who dwell there.

I just love this gorgeous black bamboo!

    Hey Magee, love your bamboo, where did you find such fantastic specimens?

  • I went to a wholesale nursery up behind Nambour this avo John! The owner grows the most fabulous exotics! Heliconias, gingers of all descriptions, lotus flowers by the hundreds, and more varieties of bamboo than I’ve ever seen before. Unfortunately I didn’t get there until 4.45pm, so the light stopped me from spending as much time as I would have like to, but I was determined to shoot her bamboo. This still isn’t THE one though John!! lolol!
