What's thick and spreads and survives 20 degree temperatures? It’s the multiplex bamboo: A cold hardy, sub-tropical variety that will provide you with a lush, unique screen in no time.
Nicknamed Hedge Bamboo, Multiplex is aptly named. Once planted, this species is a fast grower that will offer a dense living wall capable of reaching heights of up to 30 feet in less than 2 years.
Among its many advantages, Multiplex is not dependent on much outside help aside from ensuring proper soil moisture and protection from high winds. It tolerates full sun well and will actually thrive on it.
The yellowish-green leaved multiplex is perfect for creating a backyard perimeter with a secluded, tropical feel. A versatile plant, it can be easily grown in containers to help you transform your deck or patio into an island retreat.

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Multiplex Bamboo.
First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.
Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.
Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.
Next, separate the roots of your Multiplex Bamboo gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.
The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.
Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.
To make it just right, use a level.
As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.
Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.
Water your Multiplex Bamboo again after the transplant is complete.
To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.
