Chinese Dwarf is a hedging clumping bamboo that grows to roughly 10 ft in height, but can get taller in good conditions - you simply hedge it to the size you want! It grows very differently from traditional bamboo, with a very bushy, tufting habit with its foliage and does not naturally show the culms. Chinese Dwarf has quite pretty, large green leaves and gives a very tropical feel instead of a normal hedge. Chinese Dwarf is an extremely fast growing, hardy bamboo, and can achieve a privacy hedge in under 18 months! You need to trim Chinese Dwarf down between 1-4 times a year to maintain at the ideal height and to promote new fresh foliage. Chinese Dwarf is definitely a fantastic privacy hedge, sound barrier and wind break. Hedge it down to any preferred height and even clean out the below foliage to create a japanese style effect. Chinese Dwarf can be grown in full sun to part shade. Trim back as much as you desire to maintain size and promote new foliage. Chinese Dwarf is a great option for pots or troughs.

The flowers are delightful puff balls of white stamens tipped with pink. They open at night and attract large moths and nectar-feeding bats with their heavy scent.
