questions for kentuck 8b
My zone is supposedly 7b, which means temps could drop to 5F. However, I have been gardening for 5 years now, and 14F is the lowest I can remember (and that was only once in five years ... 15F a couple of times). I have had a multiplex for 4 1/2 years, and it has done well. I definitely think textilis would work also. I'm wondering whether I can grow tuldoides (Clone X in particular), dissimulator, oldhamii, or any others. What do you think?
2nd question: Are textilis and textilis 'Glabra' different enough to both be worth growing?
3rd question: Texas is pretty dry. How much do you water your bamboos?
