    Bamboo’s a good addition to our 100m garden. What variety could you recommend?

    Something small and that doesn’t spread. You’ll be quickly overrun if you don’t choose the right variety! Pleioblastus are nice, and they grow slow, too.

    I like a Fargesia cultivar that might please you, the ‘rufa’ is tall enough to cover a fence but not much taller, and it’s a nice golden orange color.

    I found a picture but it’s a bit grainy. Saw one at a bamboo garden but didn’t take a picture, this pic is nice though

    Hello Kell, look for phyllostachys. It’s a beautiful variety, you’ll see. Β πŸ˜‰
