Default Bamboo from B&&Q - need info

The message
from "Andrew Thomson" contains these words:

I had a look around B&Q today. They are doing a bamboo that they call
'Jumbo'. I've had a look around the internet and since I can't find anyone
else with info on Bamboo 'Jumbo', I'm assuming that this is not the
official name for this plant.


The plant info card describes the height as 180-240cm, which doesn't seem
jumbo in comparison to some of the bamboos I've seen.


Adam's description sounds alluring..how much was it at B and Q,
please? I may have to send an emissary :-)

Janet.

We have sold a bamboo at my work in the past called Fargesia muirielle
'Jumbo' if that helps..

Cheers

I bought one of B&Q's 'Bamboo Jumbo' a couple of years ago and planted
it in my garden. A bit of a misnomer, as it hasn't spread or increased
in height at all during that time. Just so as you don't think you can
fill a big bare patch with it...
