Yes!! 8)love the Oldhamii , will have to get several more , love the sound of the wind through the bamboo groves , like dozens of gentle wind chimes , very relaxing and restful
Oops Looks like I got your picture descriptions mixed up. What is your average low in the winter where you live?hairymick said:Thanks for the link Sheetsy. Viridistriata is what we call bar code bamboo. very popular round here.
We have a couple of Bambusa textilis glabra that are also looking real nice but they aren't nearly as vigorous as oldhamii or as heave shade. Probably make good paddle shafts or spuds though.
Been trying to grow a Betung Hitam, but they have died each winter. Will have to go out to bambooland and try to find out what I am doing wrong.
