David Bisset bamboo is a very vigorous grower with dark green culms.  Several sites on the web claim it only gets to about 15 to 20 feet tall.  The American Bamboo Society list it to 40 feet tall and I’ve seen a grove that reached that height at Steve Ray’s Bamboo Gardens.  My grove is about 25 to 30 feet tall but is growing in very poor soil with little sun.  The canes grow very close together.
