A Bit More

Bambusa oldhamii is also known as Giant Timber Bamboo for excellent reason. Culms 4 inches across and more than 40 feet tall grow slowly, but create an effective living wall. Bambusa oldhamii takes up a remarkably small footprint, making it a surprisingly good fit in a moderately sized landscape. Use as a statement stand in a Japanese themed garden, or as a substantial privacy screen.
