Have a bamboo garden in South Florida, this bamboo, while a beautiful swaying 50-60 ft bamboo, is not recommended, because. the bamboo clumps inside itself and creates a thick wall of dark 50 ft shade. Very difficult to cut down or thin out, as the huge culms criss cross inside the core of plant. I planted 2 and totally removed 1, and am eradicating new growth by cutting down the new growth every few days. Not an open bamboo, thick and the bamboo catches on the chain saw, not like a timber bamboo which is like a wood and easier to cut.
