Green Hedge Clumping Bamboo - A fast, effective barrier plant

This one-month-old Green Hedge Clumping Bamboo only had one cane when it was first planted from a 3-gal container.  One month later and a new shoot has already emerged with many more shoots to follow over the next few months.  See photo below.

This line of one-year-old Green Hedge Clumping Bamboos looked like the top picture when it was first planted.  Each bamboo only had a single cane in each 3-gal container.  The bamboos are planted 4' apart.  After only one growing season, many new shoots emerged to form an 8'-10' tall solid wall of green.     
Here's an example of how effectively Green Hedge Clumping Bamboo can provide a sight and sound barrier.  The above photo shows a one-year-old line of Green Hedge Clumping Bamboo started from 7-gal plants. Prior to planting, the house below was completely exposed to the noise and traffic on SR 19 in Groveland.  One year after planting, the house is no longer visible and you can hardly hear the sound of cars and trucks speeding by
