This is a tropical bamboo with a thick, clumping habit. It is probably the hardiest of all the multiplex clumping bamboo that we grow. Though it is supposed to hardy to 12ºf-15ºf we have seen it take 5f with heavy mulching. New culms appear late in the Spring. In the inland valleys of the Pacific Northwest, it usually grows to about 6′-10′. In warmer areas of California and the South it will grow to its full height of 15'-25'. It makes a great screen or hedge. Any of our Bambusa multiplex would make a nice addition to an interior scape.
