Idea for a bamboo around this pool
It's a really nice dilemma to have, but I want to replace this ex-palm in the pot around my pool. I have been toying with another palm and really can't decide on one. I then thought a bamboo would look great - just can't decide which one!!
I am in south-east UK, about zone 9a, so can get a frozen spell in winter but rare and not for long. I have phyllostachys nigra and aurea in containers which sailed through last winter, despite being frozen for two weeks. I would love to get your ideas - the only condition is it has to be fairly upright, or it will just get annoying as we walk past.
