We have had this phyllostachys spectabilis " green groove" for the past 8 years. It has been an excellent screen between my backyard and my neighbor's. It is supposed to be hardy to zone 5. We are in zone 6 a.
These past three winters were very harsh and cold. Starting from the winter of 2014, there have been more dieback. This spring, almost all died to the ground. We have seen new shoot starting to come up, fortunately. The screen may not be as full as previous years but it is not completely dead.
This is running bamboo. It can tolerate sun more than clumping bamboo. Howver, clumping bamboo is more cold tolerant. We don't have enough shade area for clumping variety.
