What are your favorite runner bamboos?
I am in the process of choosing 7-8 new bamboos. Unfortunately, I will need to keep them in pots because I have maxed out my yard space with about 20 different bamboos plus edible landscaping. All my bamboo are pretty young. Typically I much prefer runners. So far my favorites are Phyllostachys aurea 'Koi'and Phyllostachys aureosulcata 'Spectabilis'. I was wondering which bamboos are your favorites and why? Here are some I am thinking about Phyllostachys aurea 'Flavescens Inversa',Pseudosasa japonica 'Tsutsumiana' (Green Onion Bamboo),Phyllostachys aureosulcata 'Lama Temple',Pleioblastus shibuyanus 'Tsuboi',Semiarundinaria fastuosa 'Viridis',Semiarundinaria yashadake 'Kimmei'Pleioblastus viridistriatus 'Chrysophyllus' and Sasa kurilensis 'Shimofuri'. If you think any of these are a good or bad choice I would appreciate your advice. I am new to bamboo but I am hooked! Jen
