Ground Cover Spreading Bamboo

Spreading bamboo plants with their mass of foliage and character can add a tropical jungle feel to any cold climate garden. Popular spreaders for adding tropical feel include Sasa Palmata Nebulosa for its huge glossy leaves, Sasa Veitchii for its stunning bleached leaves and Shibataea Kumasaca for its dense bushy appearance.

While these Bambo plants have been placed under the 'Spreading Bamboo' heading they are generally well behaved. Generally shorter than the majority of the 'Clumping Bamboos' these plants play an important part of a tropical planting scheme as their leaves are very large. If the spreading nature of these plants is a concern they are easily controlled either by cutting back or installation of a root barrier.
