Bambusa chungii: This is a fast growing larger statured clumping bamboo that produces a very dense wall of bare canes up to about 10 feet high, as shown in the picture to the right, with a canopy of canes and leaves above 10 feet up to about 30 feet. We call this growth habit the "Wall of Canes" look. The wall of fat bamboo canes provides privacy at the lower heights (lower than 10 feet) and the leaves and canes provide privacy higher up (above 10 feet). The bamboo canes grow to the rather large diameter of 2.5 inches wide which is the diameter of a can of soda. This is a full sun clumping bamboo with a vertical growth habit. The new canes have a heavy white powder coating giving them a blue tone. Rated to 21 °F by the American Bamboo Society.
We recommend planting each Bambusa chungii plant in the middle of a 4 foot or larger diameter circle of soil dedicated to the plant. Additional planting details applicable to this and other "Larger Statured Clumping Bamboos" are given on our Bamboo For Privacy page on this website.
