Phyllostachys bissetii

Phyllosachys bissetii is one of the fastest spreading, most cold hardy running bamboos. We recommend this species as a quick growing screen plant, however, rhizome pruning or other control method is a must if you are concerned about spread.  If you are looking for a fast growing bamboo, or want to fill in a large area quickly, this may be the species for you.
