Both these varieties of bamboo are evergreen, giving continued screening throughout the winter months. All bamboos need watering regularly over the growing months and disliking drying out.

As evergreen screening is one of our specialities here at Paramount Plants, we tend to have screening plants in stock that are mature enough (also meaning large enough) to provide our clients with instant screening or instant privacy wherever necessary. This can transform your garden without having to wait for smaller plants to mature.

One of our bestsellers in this respect is Phyllostachys Aurea (also known as golden bamboo), an attractive, evergreen bamboo with green canes becoming golden as they mature. Phyllostachys Aurea is one of the best performing bamboos for our UK climate. It is a clump forming bamboo and can be easily trimmed to whatever height is required.

Bamboo screening remains very much in vogue with contemporary outdoor screening. Phyllostachys Aurea is often used in themed gardens such Japanese style gardens.
