Phyllostachys ‘Bissetii’

Phyllostachys Bissetii’ is one of the most Hardy of the ‘Phyllostachys’ bamboo species. It can be recognised by its slightly shiny green leaves and forms thick blue-green, later grey-green stems. The leaves are quite small and light green in colour. This bamboo is Hardy and grows in any type of soil. The dense structure of the stems and leaves makes it very suitable for creating a dense hedge. It is a rampant bamboo species and therefore requires a little more maintenance. It is necessary to place a root limiter near the plant to prevent the roots from spreading further, otherwise it will spread throughout the garden. Did you know that ‘Phyllostachys Bissetii’ is an edible bamboo? The young shoots (new stems) can be harvested regularly in spring and summer. The shoots can be boiled or stir-fried and the taste is between that of leek and asparagus.
