Bambusa oldhamii is a great all round bamboo if you have the room. It grows too big to have on small blocks, but on larger blocks and acreage it is a wonderful bamboo! If you do not have the room Gracilis would be a much better plant for screening.
Oldhamii grows very quickly, very erect and lush and will block out the neighbours in 6-12 months. It can easily block out a 3 story window.
Perfect for windbreaks and noise barriers! The shoots are edible and the poles are very strong. It is commonly called "Sweet Shoot" bamboo.
