Bambusa Bissetti 150cm CL9
Vigorous and hardy, this decorative bamboo is one of the first to produce new canes each year. These canes appear in late spring or early summer and have a mainly upright habit, but do arch slightly. Their colour is green, but will sometimes have a purple flush, but over a period of several years, will fade to a yellow-green. They have a glossy finish and are clothed in rich green leaves, which cope well with adverse weather conditions. Initially forming really dense clumps, this bamboo is ideal for screening, but will spread with age.

PLANTING & CARE
Planting & Aftercare Advice
Best in a large container, but if you need to plant in the garden, ensure that a physical barrier is placed around the roots to stop them invading surrounding areas. Bamboos never look their best in winter because the cold, drying winds will often scorch their leaves. In late spring however, new canes will appear bearing a fresh batch of lush foliage.
As Phyllostachys bissetii grows vigorously, it needs to be pruned regularly to prevent from spreading farther than desired. In spring, unwanted or spindly canes should be cut down to ground level.New shoots of Green Bamboo can also be pruned once they grow taller than the rest of the plant if you wish to maintain a compact size.
