functional types to plant?
Hello. I just got my first house and am having a hard time deciding which bamboo to plant. I grow quite a few in pots now and don't have enough room for the hundred or fso I would like. I want to use bamboo culms as much as possible for arbors, fencing, decorative stuff, etc. I am planning on doing a lot of light construction projects. Looking for recommendations of the best for strong, straight poles - as large as possible but also ones for simple trellis', maybe as small as 1-2"?. I am in Inglewood/Los Angeles, CA and we now get some frost here. My Mei Nung and Wamin suffer a bit in the winter in their large tile crates but may be fine once planted.
What I have already: Golden, Black, Alphonse, Buddha Belly, tootsik, Mei Nung, Kimmei, Wamin, D.asper (barely alive), Tonkin, Arrow, (and a few other small ornamentals). And I just bought a small Lako.
