This is one of many Phyllostachys species that are superficially 'just' plain green but Phyllostachys bissetii stands out from the crowd because it excels at what it does - it is extremely hardy and tolerant. It is one of the freshest looking bamboos at winter's end - its thickly growing foliage and densely clustered canes are almost completely windproof, thereby making a perfect screening or hedging plant. Ultimately a running bamboo, Phyllostachys bissetii benefits from barrier protection although it can remain compact for some years before taking off.

Delivery location

Due to the nature of the consignments, the courier's drivers are not insured to carry goods through your property. The standard delivery location is the border of your property or the entrance of a communal space. If other arrangements need to be made, please get in touch with us as soon as the order is placed.
Vouchers and small boxes can be posted through the letterbox, provided there is unrestricted access to it. 


Bamboos can be grown almost anywhere, but avoid excessively windy locations. Many can be grown in sun or shade (sun is usually best for colour).Bamboos are generally shallow rooted and prefer a rich, moisture retentive, organic soil. 


Before planting out, the roots should be soaked in water for some time, and after planting it is important that the plant is watered well.

Hardy species of bamboo which were grown in pots can be planted anytime during the year, except in frozen ground.

Great choice. Healthy plants. Growing like Billy-o already

A fantastic choice of bamboo. I settled on this one as I want it to spread and look full. It arrived as indicated and well wrapped. The courier tried to make a delivery during the day which failed - they contacted me and rearranged to come back the same day. The plants are sprouting like mad and looking extremely healthy. I am delighted.
