This ‘groovy’ bamboo has a wonderful chessboard pattern along its canes.
The thick yellow canes of Green Groove Bamboo are decorated with (yes, you guessed it) vertical green grooves. New canes show spectacular red highlights in the springtime, especially when grown in a sunny location. Green Groove Bamboo is very hardy against the elements and its fast, upright growth makes it an excellent choice for creating hedges or privacy screens for your garden.
Bamboo is one of the world’s fastest growing plant-types. Traditionally from Asia, its hardiness means it can actually be grown very easily in Britain – visitors to your garden will be surprised and impressed to see it there. As a forest plant, it appreciates a steady supply of moisture and compost. And as an enthusiastic grower, you should give Bamboo room to expand, we suggest placing infant plants about 100cm apart.
