Phyllostachys bissetii is a vigorous, fast-growing, clump-forming, evergreen bamboo with tall, upright, dark green canes, lighter green to golden yellow in full sun, and narrow, lance-shaped, glossy, dark green leaves. It can form extremely dense and completely windproof canopy. Phyllostachys bissetii can adapt to a wide range of soils, except waterlogged and too dry, but grows best in fertile, moist, well-drained soils. It thrives in full sun and partial shade. Resistant to frost and cold and suitable for exposed areas. Tolerant of wind. Virtually pest-free and disease-free. It may become invasive in warm and moist conditions. Medium maintenance plant, needs annual pruning. Bisset's Bamboo is a tall, stunning, ornamental and architectural bamboo. Great for informal hedges and screens, especially since its dense foliage, that reaches the ground, is almost completely windproof. Excellent for growing in containers on patios and roof gardens.

Arundel Arboretum is a shrub and tree retail nursery with over 40 years of experience.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
