Plant Families / Bamboos
Among the most fascinating of plants, Bamboos are very desirable garden plants. Cold-tolerant and easy to grow, they can make impressive clumps that are ideal as focal points, form an impenetrable hedge or screen or provide a lush and beautiful ground cover. There are 2 main types of bamboos: clumping bamboos and running bamboos. Running bamboos spread much faster than clumping bamboos and sometimes are regarded as invasive. However, keeping the plants under control is easy with some simple routine maintenance.
