Hardy Bamboo plants for Pots and Containers

Bamboo plants work well in pots and containers, either on the patio for decoration or against a fence to create an ornamental or privacy screen. We recommend choosing one of the Fargesia varieties of bamboo for a container (such as Rufa, Murielae 'Simba' or Dracocephala) or one of the more compact growing of the Phyllostachys varieties such as Aurea, Aureosulcata 'Aureocaulis' or Nigra (black bamboo).

Choosing the right Bamboo Plant for your project

Please be sure to read our Bamboo Uses guide to help you choose the right bamboo for your project. There are bamboo ideal for coastal locations, shady areas, damp areas and of course bamboo plants ideal for hedging and screening, those that grow large canes and small growing varieties ideal for ground cover.

Hardy Bamboo plants for hedging and screening

Bamboo is becoming a very popular choice for hedging and screening due to its hardy evergreen characteristics, fast growing nature and tropical look - it makes such a lovely rustling noise in the breeze - what a wonderful hedge. Our recommended hedging bamboo plants can be found in the Hedging Bamboo Section however most bamboos are suitable for most hedging projects.
