Vivax is the hardiest timber bamboo. Under native growing conditions this species can grow to over 70 feet and 5 inches in diameter but a smaller height can be expected on the west coast. It has grown over 4 inches in diameter in North America. Phyllostachys Vivax is the quickest to attain large size but the thin walled culms are not as strong as other species.
