Bamboo for ground cover

melis_689June 14, 2007

Hi, I'm in Portland, OR.

I want a bamboo ground cover that will fill my two areas between the sidewalk and the street. I have two areas like this, each about 50 ft. long 4 feet wide. I want something that spreads fast and stays green all year (I think they stay green, right)?

Does any one have any suggestions?

Does any one have any starts they could share or sell?

Can anyone point me in a right direction.

I just moved into a new house, so I don't have much to share.

Thanks for looking!

bamboo garden nursery near you is having a sale on a groundcover species, in think it is either pl pygmaeus or pl distichus, navigate to their home page and find the specials link. good chance to get your ground covered.
