This bamboo is medium height grower, it forms a dense stand and for this reason it makes an excellent hedge, windbreak or isolated clumps. Grows up to 4 m, maintains its dark green appearance even in harsh winters
Green Bamboo provides a great year round focal point in any garden due to its tall, fresh canes. As Phyllostachys bissetii is a fast growing plant, it is best situated in a spacious area, allowing it room to spread or plant where the roots will be constrained (or use a root barrier). Can be used for hedging. Green Bamboo requires watering until it is established. Once the plants have settled in, makes a wonderfully attractive, evergreen screening hedge.
Sunny or partial shade, moist to normal soil
