I'm looking for 3 or 4 plants to put into my box planter at the side of the deck. It'll grow on a south facing fence line which gets sun from lunchtime on.
I'm looking for them to grow about 2metres, as that would be high enough as a screen and low enough not to anger the next door neighbour in cutting out their light.
I'd looked at Fargesia Rufa but a local nurseryman said that they don't really grow that tall and were slow to reach that height. He recommends Phyllostachys Aurea instead. I want something with bushy growth rather than canes with a few leaves on. I'm in NE England
Can anyone add their experiences?
