Silverstripe BambooSilverstripe is the largest of the multiplexes and is also reputed to be the most cold-hardy.  Spring foliage is highly variegated, fading to mostly green through summer and fall.  Many of the canes also have beautiful silver striping.  Silverstripe is a very beautiful but underrated bamboo that is great for screening or as a specimen plant.  Best choice for a large privacy screen in zone 8. Hardiness zones 8 and above.

This tree is very similar to Colorado Blue Spruce; the major difference would be the darker green needle color, and a denser somewhat narrower habit of growth.
