like all of us..im always studying my gardens..and thinking..mmm..what else do
i need.. LOL
i would appreciate thoughts on a good tall bamboo.. i have seen many dark,blackish bamboos
and i like the idea of the dark colour..and i can contrast it with colour ,whites...
area will be mostly full sun.. we get lows of 0 in january.. rarely minus temps. even plants
i have that are semi hardy..i mulch heavy and they do just fine...
also.. who are good sources for good bamboo?
ive seen on ebay large pots ..5 gal ..others sell it in square clumps..
is one better than the other?
thanks all..
looking foward to adding bamboo to my gardens..

Tropicalnut in UT You need to learn about both running and clumping boo. Running in your area is much easier to control than in my neck of the jungel...LOL Check out the web site below for varieties as well as vendors out your way who specialize in colder climate boo. Best of luck to you with your Bamboo.
