Yellow Groove bamboo

On Sale + FREE shipping.

These are fantastic plants.  They were potted up about a year ago as nice plants.  Now that new canes are up these pots are full of canes with great rhizome systems.  These plants will more than double in size next spring.  This is one of our most cold hardy bamboos!

This bamboo will get to a height of about 10 to 15 feet in zone 5, 20 feet in zone 6, and 30 to 40 feet high in zone 7.  One of the best choices for a screening bamboo that is super cold hardy. We’ve seen groves of this bamboo that were so dense it was difficult to penetrate into the grove. Although this bamboo can grow to over 35 feet here in the southeast, it will be smaller in a cold climate. In extremely cold climates (zone 5 or colder) it may be killed back in the winter, sending up new growth in the spring. This bamboo is named for the yellow sulcis or groove on each internode. This is quite distinct in the spring on new culms. Many culms have zig-zags in the lower section. In a natural state, or pruned, it makes a great screen. We’ve seen many groves of this bamboo in our travels in the northeast. Planted every 5 feet you should have a decent bamboo screen in 2 to 4 years. Fertilizing regularly, watering during dry spells, and mulching is the fastest way to get a dense screen. This bamboo is recommended for zones 5, 6, 7, and 8.
