I enjoyed your article on bamboo one of my favorite plants.
I purchase a home several years ago that had a grove of black bamboo and was then bitten by the Bamboo bug. I also have one type of bamboo that my gardener bought for me that was did not have a name on the labeled but stated that it was a clumping bamboo (Loews). I then decided to select my own from specializes nurseries and added Bamusa multiplex Alphonse Karr, and Bambusa vulgaris vitata to add some color. I love the sound of the winds going through the groves as well as the excellent screen it provides my property.
