In this regard, which bamboo is best for screening?
Fargesia Murielae grows to a max height of 4m with a max width of 2.5m is an extremely dense variety, a perfect bamboo for screening or for hedging. Known as Umbrella Bamboo, this originates from China and will tolerate sun and wind and will also grow well in partial shade, forming a dense elegant hedge.
Subsequently, question is, how do you grow bamboo for privacy? One division of bamboo will start a grove or screen over time. However, if you want a privacy screen fast, I recommend planting 3 gallon sizes 3 to 5 feet apart, plant 2 gallon sizes 1 to 3 feet apart. This will hopefully allow you to have a good screen in three years.
Then, does bamboo make a good privacy screen?
Bamboo is a great plant for visual privacy screens or evergreen hedges because it has a relatively small footprint, it's tall, it's alive and it grows fast, produces oxygen and sequesters carbon, and to top it off, it's beautiful.
Does bamboo prefer sun or shade?
The general rule is the larger the bamboo, the more direct sunlight it requires. The large temperate species of bamboo such as the ones we grow are woodland under story plants.
