Phyllostachys bissettii


Price: €29.00

This is probably the hardiest and easiest-to-grow bamboo for the Irish climate, even near the sea or in a windy spot. This trouble-free bamboo has green stems and narrow green leaves. Although vigorous, this plant is clump-forming rather than spreading (i.e. with underground runners). It makes a fast-growing screen or specimen and is great for creating privacy quickly. This bamboo is particularly wind resistant and leaves show little signs of damage even after cold, drying winds. We have planted this plant only metres from the sea, and it has thrived there, unblemished, for many years. As with all bamboo, it requires moisture to establish, but is otherwise trouble-free. As a hedge / to create a screen for privacy, plant between 1.5 and 2 plante per metre. Canes are initially quite floppy, but will firm up after planting. 125-150cms tall plants in a 5L pot. Please note: items displayed on this website may not be in stock in each of our shops.
