Fargesia Scabrida in zone 9b
My new house has a small back yard with a 20' wide concrete patio that is 2 ft from the back fence. I want to put in a privacy screen that will grow 9'- 12' tall.
I'm looking into clumping bamboos and it looks like fargesia scabrida would be perfect. I can plant them every 5 feet along the fence but they will only have 2' in depth.
Will 2' be enough space?
If I buy a 2 gallon container that has 4 culms can I divide them before planting?
