Narrow fence Bamboo varities North Jersey.

I am in search of a bamboo clumping variety that could produce a narrow privacy fence for our corner lot.

I have been having much trouble in finding what bamboo variety to choose that tolerate our cold NJ weather in the winter, full sun, Max height of 17 feet or shorter and does not lose it's leaves in the winter.

I have been having trouble in choosing between : fragesia Robusta, scabrida, or jiuzhaigou.

I am also hoping to find someone that might have some divisions for sale in NJ or nearby so to start our natural privacy fence.
I believe there is a member in my area that has Robusta but I have no idea how to contact then through here.

I would appreciate your time.

Thank you.

I have no problem with Fargesia rufa (Green Panda), but mine does get some sun protection. Not so cheap initially, but as long as you get a few small plants, you can divide them years. My grove was only started several years ago (no, not instant, but not a lifetime). Good luck.
