Phyllostachys bissettii / Bamboo
Our best-selling and most reliable bamboo for many years. We have used this bamboo in our garden designs around Dublin, because it's hardy, wind resistant and easy to grow. Makes an excellent, tall evergreen hedge. Can even grow in seaside conditions. It is a vigorous bamboo that easily reaches 400cm or higher, making it ideal if you want to screen out an unsightly view or gain privacy in your front or back garden. It fills out to become a substantial clump, so not for somewhere space is very tight.
Mid to dark green canes with mid to dark green foliage. Most bamboos prefer soil that is fertile and moist, so add some soil enricher such as 'Gee-up' manure when planting, and water well and regularly for up to a year while establishing. Once established, they are fairly resistant to drier conditions. To grow a solid line, we recommend you space them approx 60cm apart. These bamboos form a clump that can reach over 100cm across, but are not considered an invasive bamboo. 2 litre pot. Plants 150-175cm tall.
Because plants are fragile, we no longer ship them nationwide via courier. We have tried, but even with the best packaging available they can de damaged. Plants are delivered in the Dublin area in our own van. Plants on this website are often available in our Monkstown shop. If you do want to have plants delivered outside the Dublin area, please contact us via the contact form for a quotation to cover packaging and shipping.
