Phyllostachys Rubromarginata is one of my favorites

Phyllostachys Rubromarginata is one of my favourites. And in my opinion is  a very underrated bamboo. It’s supposed to be hardy to -5 degrees F. But in my honest opinion I believe it’s much hardier than that. It can take the cold winter winds better than some of my hardier bamboo.  And it produces many more canes each year than any of my other species. It sizes up quickly and is full looking.

Phyllostachys Rubromarginata Privacy Screening

Great for screening and can be planted in wetter sites than most. The leaves are big and cover a lot of area. Plus many phyllostachys abort a lot of their new shoots but not Rubromarginata. 90% of the shoots it sends up continue to grow and form a very thick grove. It grows to 55 ft tall and 2 3/4 inches in diameter. I can’t wait to see that. The shoots have an awesome colouring with red margins around the edges of the culm sheaths. Fast growing and just beautiful. This bamboo has everything I like in a bamboo plant. It absolutely is one of my favourites.

Phyllostachys Rubromarginata Fast Spreader

It’s rhizomes spread fast, far and wide. Exactly what I like about many bamboo. I’m quickly seeing that this grove is going to be my biggest grove like it or not. The only thing I don’t like about this plant is that. It is a late shooting bamboo and it always seems like it’s never  going to shoot. And then out of the blue here it comes. It’s coming hard and fast. And before you know it the grove has doubled in 3 months. It’s so incredible to see. And the canes or culms are beautiful. Bright green shiny and smooth. They grow very tall. The smaller canes have the branches very close to the ground making this a great bamboo for a privacy screen. This species is great for taking divisions. It doesn’t seem to suffer as much transplant shock as many other bamboo do. I highly recommend this species if you have plenty of room to grow and maintain this special bamboo.
