Design Ideas: This rugged Bamboo can help create an Asian or tropical garden where there is a good deal of frost. It is invasive, therefore best grown in big ceramic pots or in a tightly constrained bed. Grow at corners of buildings, use as a dense, tall screen on property lines or adjacent to commercial land uses. Makes a beautiful background for water features and garden art. You also get a bonus of unlimited cut Bamboo poles for staking other plants!

Thrives in humus-rich, well-drained soils. Spreads by rhizomes and can become invasive; best contained in a non-perforated pot with the lip above soil level. Protect root zone with a 4 to 6-inch layer of mulch to protect in harsh winter regions. Remove older canes and new shoots at the base to thin and reduce vigor.
