Re: Bamboo Source

generally its because the plant is more acclimated to the conditions. I have found the climate close enough however even know it is colder here the freeze periods are the same.
All my stuff moved has done great.

Re: Bamboo Source

Yeah my bamboo garden stuff has done well and everything I brought out here has as well. I am more focused on clumpers now since I have a yard but we hope to buy land soon. I still have most mine in containers

Re: Bamboo Source

Bamboo Garden Nursery in Oregon has those generally. We also moved to Idaho. In the summer there is a place in Horseshoe Bend called Idaho Bamboo that may have it as well.
