san Luis Obispo, CA
Question by remark
October 27, 2005
It grows to 15-20 feet tall. How wide?
I intend to plant it in a 6' wide area between a fence and a 2' wide culvert. Can it be maintained to 8' wide?
Thank You.

Mexican Weeping Bamboo (Otatea accuminata aztecorum) is a clumping bamboo and can grow several feet in all directions each year. You can keep the plant within bounds by digging out the excess shoots, or any shoots that emerge where you don't want them to grow.
