How fast does green panda bamboo grow?

Asked July 2, 2019, 4:04 PM EDT

Hi there,

I just bought a green panda about 18 inches tall. My plan is to build it a two foot tall, three foot by 18 inch cedar planter on wheels so that I can move it around the yard. It is in Toronto Ontario (so am I).
How fast should I expect this bamboo to grow?

Thanks!

Thank you for your question. Here is a comprehensive Extension article with answers: https://extension.tennessee.edu/publications/Documents/W220.pdf Good luck!

Thank You. I don’t see in the article anything about the rate of growth... It matters for how tall I build the box, as the purpose is for a privacy barrier. If the growth will be slow, I will start with a taller box.

I have been unable to find any Extension article with that information, but this comes as close as I can find: http://plants.oaklandnursery.com/12130001/Plant/6440/Green_Panda_Clump_Bamboo
