|Design Ideas||Bamboo is among the primary signature plants of Asian inspired gardens. It is also equally at home in tropical island design themes. 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 running nature of this plant requires root containment, but planted and pruned properly, the aging golden culms make a beautiful backdrop in your garden oasis. Bamboo is quite adaptable to containers provided it is given adequate water and nitrogen to sustain vigorous growth and an overall lush appearance.|
|Companion Plants||Japanese Maple (Acer); Azalea (Azalea); Lily of the Valley (Pieris); Peony (Paeonia); Pachysandra (Pachysandra)|
|Care||Thrives in humus-rich, well-drained soils. Spreads by rhizomes and can become invasive; best contained in a non-perforated pot with the lip above soil level. Protect root zone with a 4 to 6-inch layer of mulch to protect in harsh winter regions. Remove older canes and new shoots at the base to thin and reduce vigor.|
