The Perfect Bamboo for Small Areas

Bamboo is rapidly gaining popularity in the landscaping world because of its incredibly fast growth and unique form.

The new "Sunset Glow" green bamboo is one of the most popular dwarf varieties... making it perfect for small areas.

Maturing up to just 6-8 ft. tall, the Sunset Glow bamboo is perfect around gardens, patios, or when lining your property.

This is perhaps the easiest-to-grow bamboo variety available. It's incredibly cold-hardy, growing in zones 5-9 and withstanding temperatures as cold as -20° F.

It's even tolerant of harsh sunlight, heat and drought conditions. In fact, its leaves won't curl up and shrivel due to lack of water... unlike other needy bamboo varieties.

The Sunset Glow's deep green foliage really stands out against its orange-red stems, which makes it a colorful accent plant.

This bamboo variety is non-aggressive and non-invasive. It won't run all over your yard like "running" bamboos... it "clumps", meaning its much more easy to maintain.

We're finding that homeowners are falling in love with this new variety. It's a recent addition, but we're already running low on quantity, so be sure to reserve your bamboo plants now.

Why Buy from Fast Growing Trees?

Save Money

Save thousands by shopping in the convenience of your own home instead of paying a landscaper for trees that struggle.

Tree to Door

Receive well developed, large trees and shrubs that thrive in your area.  Varieties that are easy to grow, long lived, and trouble free.  Your plants are clearly marked for size, pruned to a nice pleasing shape, and are delivered right to your doorstep.

No Chemicals

We shun growth regulators and other chemicals that make plants look good in the stores but struggle to survive once planted.

Large Size

Some nurseries charge you for a taller tree then chop 1/3 off, so it will fit in a shorter box. This saves them on shipping but can harm your tree and make you wait longer for it to grow back.

Can I Plant Now?

Yes... Your Sunset Glow Bamboo can be planted any time of year... even Winter. Roots will continue to grow on warm days, giving your tree a head-start for Spring.

It's Easy to Plant your Sunset Glow Bamboo

Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Sunset Glow Bamboo.

If you're planting a hedge, mark out a visual guide by placing stakes five to six feet apart and looping string around them. Plant the where the stakes are and they'll grow together to make a dense privacy screen.

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.

Step 2 - Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Sunset Glow 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.

Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole

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 Sunset Glow 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.

How far apart do I grow the sunset glow bamboo?
Maria B on May 31, 2014
Best Answer: They dont seem to spread very much. I live in New Jersey and planted one pot when i bought it last May. They died over last winter but i saw some shoots coming back now. The shoots appear to be much smaller than original stalks. All i can say at the moment is that they are not sprdading wildly as most bamboos species do. Hope that helps
