|Design Ideas||The large, dense habit of this Bamboo requires careful placement in the garden and will not be suitable for small, urban spaces. It will however make a bold statement as a backdrop to a large Asian garden or wooded lot. In the landscape it can be used as a clump of vertical poles for a columnar element or planted in mass for a fast growing barrier, screen or privacy hedge between properties. The clumping, non-invasive habit of Giant Timber Bamboo make it an easy, low maintenance choice for homeowners.|
|Care||Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Watering can be reduced after establishment. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring.|
