It’s a straight, thin walled and strong species, which forms an extremely dense clump. This species is great for privacy screens. Planted at 1.5 meter spacing between plants, they will form a very continuous and dense wall of bamboo within 3 years. They can be spread out a bit further say to 2 meters between plants and still create a great screen with distinct individual clumps at the base but with the foliage still creating a complete screen at the tops.
Ideally planted at least half a meter away from fences, unless using a root barrier of some description to stop it from growing under the fence. Grows well in frosty areas.
It is one of our most popular sellers for suburban area screening, hedging and landscaping.
