Bamboo plants for hedge or screen
There are several types of bamboo that are ideally suited for hedging purposes. Bamboos evergreen, fast growing and hardy characteristics make it ideal for a solid screen and there are some varieties which are tall growing but not excessively so. If you choose to grow a running bamboo as hedging, be sure to restrict the root growth to avoid running springing up in unwanted parts of your (or the neighbours!) garden. Bamboo hedging provides movement and an oriental feel to your gardens perimeter.
