Narrow Trench to grow Bamboo
I have a very narrow backyard. I also have a pretty ugly unfinished concrete masonry wall on on side that I would like to screen somehow and thus arrived at the idea of bamboo. If I want bamboo to grow in a trench area that is no more than 20-inch wide by 19-feet long, what type of bamboo would be best suited for this - clumping or running?
Characteristics of the bamboo I would like:
-Erect/straight, small to medium leaves
-3/4" or 1" dia. medium (?) culms with leaves from the bottom to the top
-Green, yellow or striped culm are all good.
-The height is important at 12-15'.
-Must be able to withstand full sun. In the summer its hot and humid. Winter has infrequent snowfalls (handful per season) and can do down to the teens.
If I am good about cutting out/removing rhizomes every year, will that help with the "narrowness" I've alloted for this bamboo?
