The 'Vivax' is a plant with potential, even in our colder climates, that can thrive to produce an abundance of large, thick and decorative canes. This could be described as the only cold hardy Timber Bamboo.

Phyllostachys Vivax will shoot during early Summer. Grow this bamboo as a solitary specimen plant for its large stature, thick green canes and delicate dark green leaves.

This plant would benefit planted in a sheltered position and if in a cold region of the UK some winter protection recommended until maturity.
