This is "Greenstripe" and is almost irridescent when it forms new shoots in the Spring. It is a great plant for groundcover as long as it is not exposed to our hot summer sun. If you need a pretty one for the sun, look at the next picture below:
This is looking from inside the grounds of a private residence toward the road. In the background you can see tightly packed mixed timber species in one of the 100' long raised beds along the highway. No prying eyes can bother these folks.
Here is a pretty installation alongside a driveway.
Here is another way to gain privacy. These planters are mounted on casters so they can be moved as the sun changes direction to provide shade or screening from the neighbor. Just imagine once they have filled in with new growth this spring! Very Clever.
A nationally renowned artist applies bamboo to his palette for his own landscape and you get this.
What kind of mood do you want your garden to set? This teahouse is nestled in a small grove of screening size bamboo. Very cool. (like 20 degrees less)-
This can be accomplished in almost any small back yard.
If you look carefully, you can see just a little bit remaining of some bermuda this ground cover White Stripe is slowly choking out! Sun or shade, an excellent choice for holding a slope.
Good gardeners know to use combinations of different heights in plants as well as colors. When friends come to share the fire pit in the background, there is a wall of bamboo separating them from the rest of the neighborhood. (It also hides a field fence which keeps the dog in the yard)
In another spot, this same artist's use of the bamboo is subtle- as a backdrop to more dramatic features in the front of his garden. Beautiful even in long winter shadows.
It should be no surprise that kids love to play in the groves. You need lots of space, sun and time and the right species to get huge.This is one of the Vivax and is bigger than an 8 year old's leg! When you think about "sustainable", remember there is no other way you could grow a forest this pretty in less than 10 years.
Would you rather have vibrant colors, with lots of texture, but need a tall backdrop? The bamboo in the background hides some ugly buildings and makes this garden appear to be an entirely separate "room"
This is the asphalt parking lot at the city Horticulturist's office. This screen shields them from a dusty concrete operation on the other side.
Country music people don't necessarily like having people watching them as they are out riding, so a combination of fence and bamboo does the trick nicely.
Some golden bamboos get huge, too. This one is p. viridis "Robert Young"
Don't want to wait? No problem. We usually have 1200-1400 standard screening plants stabilized and ready to load.
Do you know how to pack the plants on? These guys got 200 standard plants in one load even though they already had a mini-x on board! We will help your people load.
Sunset looking down a driveway with bamboo plantings on both sides. Beautiful and low maintenance.

We have easy loading with a loop to allow trucks and trailers like this to move to the staging area. Low-boys or semi's will want to back in.
We will be glad to wrap your purchase for transit. Please remember you will need to elevate the back of your trailer with a tailgate (or in this case a sawhorse)
