#1: Advice needed for running bamboo in NJ

Posted on 2006-05-29 20:26:51 by Inquisitive

Hello all,

I'm pretty new to bamboo, but am already obsessed. I have two clumps
that I harvested from a friend's yard, but their spreading has been slow
and need some quicker gratification.

My research so far has indicated that the following types of bamboo are
cold-hardy enough for NJ (Zone 5):

P. Aureosulcata
P. Angusta
P. Bissetii
P. Flexuosa
P. Nuda
P. Atrovaginata (fka Congesta)

If I could have everything that I wanted, I would like the following, in
order of importance:

Running
Shade-tolerant
Visual barrier for pool area (I guess at least 8 feet tall)
Delicate leaves

I GREATLY appreciate any sage counsel!

TIA,
Christopher

I have a "spreading" type of bamboo in my backyard (northern New
Jersey) (spreaded from my neighbor property). It works "OK" to act as
a privacy screen. But I won't choose it purely as a privacy screen
because they are spreading a bit too far apart and don't grow dense
enough to provide a good screen (definitely not good enough for a pool
area). For example, I can clearly see through a 8-ft deep bamboo
screen. A non-spreading clump type bamboo is probably a better choice
to work as a privacy screen based on my observation of some clump type
bamboo growing in my neighborhood.
