Completely New to Bamboo, help!?
So I've always been a big fan of bamboo and its looks and lately I've been thinking of lining my fence with bamboo for a few reasons. 1) We have some nosy neighbors and 2) I'm trying to go for more islandish look in the backyard. The area in which I live in SoCal can get pretty hot in the summer. We may have 2 weeks were it can get to 110(heat wave) and pretty dry. But the usual summer will be between 85-95 (occasional 100) and dry. The winters don't dip below 45 usually.
Could someone recommend a variety that would grow fairly quickly and thickly together? The fence I'd like to top is 6 feet. I like the bamboo that is pretty thick (the size of a grown mans fist) and a nice yellow? If that makes any sense?
