Living Bamboo Plant Finder
The evergreen foliage of bamboo can be used to create an attractive hedge. As bamboo is fast growing, a hedge can be achieved faster than if more traditional hedging plants are used. Different clumping bamboos are available to achieve dwarf hedges, waist-high hedges or taller hedges/screens.
The bamboo can be cut to form a hedge like you would do for traditional hedging plants. This is best done after the new culms have grown to their full height in the spring/summer. Minor touch ups at other times of the year would be sufficient after this one major pruning.
