Bamboos are characteristically grouped into two types: running bamboos and clumping bamboos. Both types are easy to grow. Here are some best bamboos you can grow in your garden.
They are highly versatile and adaptable to a range of climatic conditions. They are also famed for having long, slender leaves with a bright green hue at the top and a greyish tone at the bottom.
Umbrella Bamboo (Fargesia murielae)
Hedge bamboos are exceptionally hardy and known to maintain their beautiful green hue no matter the climate or the season. They have bluish-green culms that develop into lovely, bright canes.
Hedge Bamboo (Phyllostachys glauca)
Guadua bamboos are not always the first choice for many gardeners since they can be a bit invasive and requires plenty of space to grow. They also need lots of patience because their initial seedlings often take time and mature only after 5 years.
Guadua Bamboo (Guadua bambusa)
Buddha bamboos are tropical plants that will thrive in temperate regions. However, keeping the plant indoors is highly recommended if you live in cooler regions.
