Bamboo Plants

Bamboo Plants
Bamboos come in a variety of shapes and sizes and range from being dwarf ground cover plants to architectural stands of canes growing to 5 metres or more in height.
Many bamboos spread quickly and are highly invasive but still make good windbreaks especially against under draughts below trees or in semi shade. Others remain as close clumps and these with coloured canes make very attractive features in the garden.
