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.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: humus-rich, moist, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Leaves: dark green, oblong
  • Canes: olive green, maturing to pale beige and dark green
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Tall, vigorous bamboo with olive canes maturing to pale beige and dark green oblong leaves. Arrow bamboo is one of the most wind and shade tolerant varieties. Broadly upright in habit, as long as the roots are surrounded with a non-perishable barrier it makes an attractive screen or windbreak for moist, well-drained areas of the garden.

  • Garden care: Plant in a large container or surround the roots with a non-perishable barrier that restricts the plant's spread.
