New yard/cold climate bamboo
As we have designed our new yard (a daunting, but exciting prospect at our advanced age) we decided that for screening a neighbors unsightly outbuilding banboo might be just the thing. We have read and studied a ton and were surprised to find that even among the best nurseries we know - experts here seem very uninformed about bamboo. We have been offered several species that turned out to be grasses, not bamboo, and many excellent gardeners just dismiss it when we ask. We are thinking of going to a nursery in Oregon to buy what we need and get some experience with it. We did find one nursery here which will carry Yellow Groove. Would that be our best bet, or does a rod trip make sense?
