I was told the other day that this plant blooms ONCE every hundred years. Always on the same day and every plant, no matter where it is (country, continent etc.) blooms at the same time. I've been trying to find confirmation of this miraculous phenomina as it was told to me by a priest. Anyone else ever heard this?

Umbrella bamboo, Fargesia murieliae, is one of the lovliest garden bamboos. It is a clumper, so not at all invasive. It is also one of the hardiest, surviving to -20 F. I have been growing mine in St. John's, Newfoundland, Canada (zone 5b) for 8 years with no problems (it is now approaching 6 ft). They are mostly evergreen but a few older leaves turn yellow in fall, adding to the interest.
