The Q&A Archives: Spacing of Clumping Bamboo

Question: I have 'Golden Goddess' clumping type bamboo plants (5 gal pots), and I want to use them for a screen. How far apart should I plant them?

Answer: 'Golden Goddess' Bamboo will grow 6'-8' in height with 1/2 inch thick arching canes. Because they're clumping, your plants will eventually spread out. I'd place them 5'-6' apart providing ultimate space for growth. If you want a quick screen, plant them 3'-4' apart.
