Bamboo:Running vs Clumping Information
Running bamboo can develop a dense natural screen providing privacy in the landscape. Runners spread through rhizomes allowing it to expand rather quickly. They are recommended for large open areas and soil erosion control. However, they can become aggressive, barrier installation is recommended. Installing a thick plastic rhizome barrier about 24-30 inches deep around the perimeter of the area in which the bamboo is to be contained is one of the most effective ways to prevent the bamboo from taking over where it would be undesired. Phyllostachys species are common running bamboos sold at Cavicchio Greenhouses, Inc. Clumping bamboo make excellent specimen plants and will form very dense screens, but more slowly than runners. Because of the short root structure they will not expand more than few inches a year and will generally form discrete clumps. These clumps slowly enlarge as new culms emerge every year. It is not necessary to surround the plant with a barrier, but they may be shaped to prevent them from putting pressure on any surrounding structures. Simply remove new shoots at the soil level when they get undesirably close. Fargesia is a common cold hardy clumping bamboo
