Fargesia robusta-Green Screen Bamboo

Since Green Screen is trademarked so propagating and selling it as such is illegal but any bamboo can be divided as long as the culms contain enough rhizome to allow it to re-root. This is a non-invasive but fast growing clumping bamboo that will reach a height of 16' and can be used as a great screen or specimen planting, is deer resistant and hardy in Zone 5 and up. It is native to China and needs good drainage which can be accomplished by adding organic soil, compost or manure when planting.
