Shade Tolerant Bamboo Zone 7
I recently purchased my home and I've been trying to decide what would be best for a backyard privacy barrier to screen out the view of the garage apartment next door. I was iffy about bamboo but after exploring evergreen alternatives, I'm back to bamboo. I absolutely plan to install the rhizome barrier and keep a close eye on it. The space I want to fill is about 20 feet long and narrow (3 feet wide). As you can see from the picture, sunlight is an issue because of the large pecan tree in the middle of our yard. Are there any zone 7 hardy bamboos that are shade tolerant, but will still provide the 20 feet or so of height I'm looking for? Would it be safe to plant in fall (if so, for roughly how much longer?) or should I wait until spring? Thanks so much!
