*Phyllostachys bissetii Bamboo-Gal Pot

This exceptionally cold hardy bamboo is one of the smallest of its genus and can grow to about 20'. Spreading vigorously once established,  its low thick dark green culms and low branches and leaves make for an excellent screen. Bissetii is a great farmstead building bamboo. After a few years when your bamboo stand is more mature, harvest 3 to 6 year old canes which will have strong thick walls but be very bendable and only about an inch in diameter ideal for tying together and bending into many things including greenhouse arches and other structures.  Newly emerged shoots can be used in stir fry or your choice of cuisine! Gallon sized. To -20 F.

Items listed on the website are what we have available this season. Items appearing in the Raintree catalog that are sold out do not appear on the website. If you are interested in reserving a sold out item for next year, call us at 1-800-391-8892.
LATE PLANTING INSTRUCTIONS: If you live in an area where temperatures are now often above 75 degrees, it is too warm to plant bare root plants. You can call us and reserve for next season. For those of you in cooler areas, our bare root plants area dormant in cold storage and are in great condition to dig in and grow for you.

We advise soaking the roots for 24 hours before planting.
