... has such unique foliage and culms that I think it would be worth growing as a top-kill boo if it will only get a few feet tall. Btw my zone is 7b but most winters our lows are in the teens and for only one or two nights, I am close to a nuclear power station's cooling pond here so I have a ...

Hey Matt, I'm 7b also, and I have 2 S. t. Albo's in the ground. They are both now just a few leaves at ground level, so don't waste your time ... enjoy a 'Shiroshima' instead! Chinese Walking Stick has been tough as well, but I refuse ...

... eastern shore of NS, just a stupid sales pitch based on hearsay. I wouldn't race out lining the streets here with tress until we move up to Zone 7b or Z8 with global warming! Sure, by all means keeners might have a go at one but let the facts be known. You ask about the Dove Tree, yes there was ...

... kill :) With the bambusas, they can be grown with protection in some marginal climates, I know they are successfully grown in North Carolina zone 7b but they only have at most a couple of nights below 15f per year, and I believe those are protected by being planted in the middle of a large botanical ...

... winter, but you are 2 zones colder so I believe it is safer for you to keep them covered up for at least another month. We are closer to a zone 7b from March on. Usually when temperatures start averaging up to around 0 to 8C with no arctic blasts in the forecast, you should be safe. Also when ...

I just saw that Plant Delights has recently introduced a selection of Bambusa multiplex called 'Green Giant' that is a culm sport from a clump of Alphonse Karr. It is said to be hardier and grow larger than the other multiplexes there in zone 7b. I don't think I can resist trying one... :)
