This RHS award-winning bamboo provides a dense evergreen screen, perfect for hedging and has mid-green, lance-shaped leaves held on dark green stems. P. bissetii produces new canes earlier in the season than many other bamboos, appearing in late spring or early summer. The canes have an upright, slightly arching habit, although this will be less apparent if grown as a screen.
- Garden care: Protect from cold drying winds, especially while establishing, this can be done with windbreak and shade netting. A vigorous grower in ideal conditions so you may wish to consider using a root barrier to limit spread. Trim in late spring, before new growth emerges to maintain form. For established hedges, thicker canes can be removed at ground level to promote good air circulation and vigour.
