This is probably the hardiest, easiest-to-grow bamboo for the Irish climate, even near the sea or in a windy spot.  This bamboo species makes an excellent an effective screening plant. It has green stems and narrow green leaves. Although vigorous, this plant is clump-forming rather than spreading. It makes a fast-growing screen or specimen and is great for creating privacy quickly. It 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. Bamboos grow well in post / containers, but you need a large, strong pot, good quality, soil-based compost and regular watering. As a hedge / to create a screen, plant between 1.5 and 2 plants per metre. Canes are initially quite floppy, but will firm up after planting. Can grow to 350-400cms or more if in good location. Healthy plants with numerouos canes, 150-160cm tall plants in a 5L container.
