When to plant: autumn or spring?

michael_in_chicago(z5)August 5, 2008

I've got a spot that's waiting for a Fargesia murialae. I'm in z5, and the F. nitida I've had for a couple of years is just one of my favorite plants and I'd like to try another Fargesia. Should I get one now to plant, or wait until spring so that it has the whole growing season to establish itself?

Thanks.

I am in Zone 9 and have planted bamboo in Autumn and Spring and it has been fine both ways. Not sure about your zone.
