Evergreen: Yes, but like almost all Bamboo plants do shed some leaves during late Autumn/Early winter however these will soon be replaced once the temperatures start to rise and the growing season commences
Hardiness: -20 suitable for the whole UK
Despite its height and stature it is one of the better behaved varieties, it is reliably hardy down to approximately -20 and requires very little maintenance, some liquid feed during the growing season is always beneficial, but not a requirement, however water is so whilst these plants are classed as drought resistant we would not take this for granted, this is especially the case if pot planted always ensure a good water supply.
