Type of bamboo? and will it grow...

Posted by ggallen NJ (My Page) on

I was able to dig up some young plants from a local grove.
Which kind of bamboo is this? they were about 40-50' full grown.
Before I put it in my yard, I'm going to need to setup a area, since I injured my leg, I won't be able to do any yeardwork for a few months, so I put the plants into a box planter.

Will they grow here? and how tall/fast will they grow?

With all the rain we just got, it's been pretty well watered!

Rutgers has a nice grove of Phyllostachys nuda?

Hard to tell from your pics, but given the size you listed, take a look at some of the hardier Phylostachys (minus 10*f or below)
