3ft Green Bamboo - 5L Pot Phyllostachys Bissetii
Phyllostachys Bissetii (Green Bamboo) - 5L Pot

One of the hardiest bamboos with vibrant, dark green canes which occasionally have a purple flush when young and fade to a yellow-green with age. The rich green leaves and a dense habit which spreads with age make this an ideal focal point for your garden.

This bamboo is extremely hardy and easy to look after and once planted will provide you with a hassle free statement piece to add an oriental charm to your garden. It’s dense canopy and clumping nature means that this plant is perfect for hedging or creating a uniquely luxurious privacy screen.

Bissetti’s strong resistance to cold makes the plant a perfect option to grow in a container so you can move it around your garden or group together with other plants to make a bespoke arrangement.

Primrose Guides


Oriental Charm

Phyllostachys Bissetii is an excellent, fully hardy, evergreen, statement plant. It has wonderful, long, mid-green leaves which look great with the canes that can have a purple flush when young. Originally native to China, it has a wonderful oriental charm and would look brilliant as part of a garden that incorporates other influences from East Asia. It can be matched with other plants from that part of the world including Japanese Flowering Cherry Trees and Acer Trees.

Size, Shape and Uses

Phyllostachys Bissetii is an incredibly striking variety of bamboo and it is easy to see why it is so popular. It makes an excellent specimen plant with its tall, mainly upright habit. The vibrant, yellow-green canes gently arch under the weight of the evergreen leaves and it makes an excellent architectural statement in the garden. It is perfect for using as a separator, hedge or as privacy screening. For more ideas about how to use your bamboo please click here.

Planting and Care

Place in either a sunny or shaded area in a sheltered spot away from cold, drying winds. This bamboo will thrive in any soil as long as it is moist but has good drainage. Water young plants regularly until established. Remove weak, dead, damaged or spindly stems in spring. Cut out any flowering shoots promptly to discourage more from forming.
