need some advice on type

Post by miketropic » Sat Oct 27, 2012 4:08 pm

I have decided there are a few places I would like to use bamboo as a ground cover and I know there are many dwarf types. can anyone make suggestions on good short ground cover bamboos. If there are some that have nice varigated leaves and such Id prefer those but some well behaved green ones are alright as well. Id like they to stay around 1-2ft if possible and need to be hardy in zone 6

a steady runner, if you cut it down each spring it keeps it fresh and smaller.
