Non-invasive dense screening bamboo. It is great as a sound barrier and is fast-growing.
It naturally will grow as tall as a single storey building, however, can easily be kept shorter and looks more attractive when trimmed.
It naturally grows in a vase shape, fanning out like an ice cream cone.
It will grow in full sun although, prefers a shadier position to keep a deeper green colour.
Plant 50 cm to 1 metre apart. Also, ideal for pots and planter boxes.
Drought tolerance once established, however, will need daily watering for the first 6 weeks. Fertilise quarterly.
