Several years ago we had a green mutation on our clump of Bambusa 'Alphonse Karr' which, when planted on its own, grew to Sasquatch proportions (25' tall x 8' wide at the base). Our original clump, which we named Bambusa 'Green Giant', is now 9 years old and, although we see some tip damage at 14 degrees F, it has much better winter hardiness than the other Bambusa multiplex cultivars we grow and doesn't die to the ground like Bambusa 'Alphonse Karr' at the same temperatures. Our largest canes are already over 1" diameter. Although it doesn't run, Bambusa 'Green Giant' still takes up plenty of space...so site it correctly.
