Privacy Screening

     This is the most cold hardy of the running  bamboo and  the roots can survive to - 20 F. when established and mulched well.  Nuda comes from Zhejiang in east China. It has very dark green erect canes with the powdery white nodal ring present on new growth.  The new shoots are edible. This is the one for all of you that live where it is really cold. 
You cannot expect it to reach mature sizes in USDA Climate Zone 4, but it is well suited for those areas way up north. Average heights of 12 to 18 feet in climate zones 6 at maturity. The culm (cane) sheath is gray/wine colored with no auricles or oral setae.

In zone 4, Idaho, we have reports of this species doing great. There is some foliage drop, but new canes have came back even when temps have gone to -30F.

At the Denver Zoo, climate zone 5,  after over 12 years nuda has sized out at an average of 10 feet in height by .50 inch diameter canes. It will remain evergreen in zone 5 after establishment of the rhizome system.
 
Climate Zone 7 expect mature size canes to be over 30 feet. in height.
Climate Zone 6 expect mature size canes to be 18 feet in height.
Climate Zone 5 expect mature size canes to be 10 feet in height.

Climate Zone 4 expect mature size canes to be 8 feet in height.

 I recommend this species for USDA Climate Zones 5 and warmer.
