Plant of the Week: Bamboo
It's no wonder bamboos are a garden designer's favourite. Tall and willowy, they have an entrancing habit of swaying and whispering in the slightest breeze. They make delicate screens to block out unwelcome eyesores; and best of all, they're easy to grow and very low-maintenance.
The larger, vigorous bamboos have a bad reputation, so avoid these and stick to the better-behaved clump-forming types like Fargesia murielae, with arching sprays of foliage, and the leafy evergreen Chusquea culeou, or Chilean bamboo. The Phyllostachys family come in a dazzling range of colours: P. nigra has stems of moody black while P. aureosulcata f. aureocaulis is rich buttery yellow.
