Hardy Evergreen Bamboo Customer Reviews
Fast Growing!Review by Joseph Hernandez - Chicago Heights, IL Posted on 2014-08-30 11:08:03
I purchased these to start on an eventual hedge. Four months later and they have grown taller and hardier. They have even started to sprout multiple new shoots and begin new clusters.
They have nice deep green leaves that will look great as they get taller.
Hardy Evergreen Bamboo is a rich verdant bamboo strain that maintains its coloration even in severe climates. These bamboo canes grow fast, and when the foliage matures, they can reach heights anywhere from 18 to 30 feet and develop into exceptional hedges for privacy and landscape cover. This hardy bamboo grows in clumps and should be planted about four to six feet apart to allow for new shoots to prosper. It grows very well in moderate climates: even in colder zones, including Zones 5 and 6, this bamboo reaches 18-30 feet in stature. The hollow hardy bamboo stalks grow quite rapidly and can attain up to a two-inch diameter. This clumping bamboo is non-invasive and growth is easily controlled. Perfect as privacy plants or for dividing lines in your landscape; our Hardy Evergreen Bamboo lends the perfect touch to your yard.
