Phyllostachys Viridiglaucescens, also known as Green Glaucous Bamboo, is a vigorous, evergreen bamboo variety. Grown for its attractive, tall canes and lush green foliage, this cultivar is an ideal candidate for evergreen screening or hedging.
One of the main reasons why this variety of bamboo is so popular is that it offers year-round interest. The glossy, green canes mature to yellowish-green, and the profusion of bright green foliage remains on the tall, erect canes throughout the seasons. The lanceolate leaves are brilliant green with a glaucous (greyish-blue) underside, hence the name Green Glaucous Bamboo. Each leaf can be up to 15 centimetres long.
Phyllostachys Viridiglaucescens prefers loamy soils, but it can thrive in almost any fertile, moist but well-drained soil that is rich in humus. In case you are planning to grow this bamboo variety in a big container, make sure you use a loam-based compost, enriched with a liquid fertiliser. When it comes to choosing a perfect spot for Green Glaucous Bamboo, pick a location that’s either in full sun or partial shade, as this evergreen cultivar tolerates both.
Fully hardy in Britain and Ireland, this Chinese native fares well even in the areas with more severe winters. Vigorous and robust, it’s considered to be pest and disease free, and it won’t need sheltering from frost. Unlike most bamboo varieties, Phyllostachys Viridiglaucescens is clump-forming, so it is not considered overly invasive. However, in hot and humid conditions, this cultivar can spread beyond its bounds. To control its growth, simply use a bamboo barrier. 
With a fast growth rate and a suckering habit, Green Glaucous Bamboo can grow to be 8 metres high and up to 4 metres wide. 
If you’re wondering what is a perfect plant for informal screen or a hedge, bamboo varieties such as Phyllostachys Viridiglaucescens are definitely at the top of the list. They require little effort, and their evergreen foliage and tall canes offer multiple seasons of interest. The tall, yellowish-green culms and the dense foliage form a lush, evergreen thicket perfect for screening or evergreen hedges. Not only that it is highly decorative, Green Glaucous Bamboo is also maintenance-free and resistant to pest and diseases, so it won’t require constant trimming or pruning to stay in perfect shape.
