Separate rhizomes in the spring. Keep divisions moist and shaded until established.
Bamboo does well in full sun, or partial shade if not variegated. Have fast-growing rhizomes, and produce thickets of round, up-right, woody culms. Grow in an open site in a woodland garden or as a pseudo-hedge.
Blooms are rare.
Bamboo should be planted in a rich mix and a sufficient amount of organic material should be added. Plant requires regular water during growth.
Some species can exhibit a weed-like habit.
