Looking: Z7 Clumping Bamboo - Trade: Hydrangea, Etc!!!

markg00001(z7a VA USA)April 20, 2006

Happy Spring!

I am in northern Virginia and looking to add some cold tolerant clumping bamboo to my back yard for a more "tropical" feel. Since I am an avid gardner I have a lot of material to trade, but am open to other options.

I'd like to collect a few of the smaller (15' or less) bamboo species for various places and thought the following would be good potential candidates (although again, I'm open to other possibilities):

Fargesia rufa

Fargesia rufa Green Panda

Fargesia nitida

Fargesia nitida 'Juizhaigou'

Chusquea sp. 'Nigricans'

Chusquea culeou 'Chilean Straight'

I have been collecting Hydrangea for years, but also have other tradable material as well, if you are interested. Please let me know what works. Thanks!

Have you considered cold hardy palms or bananas?

did you ever get your fargesia? I have a lot of it and it has survived a very wet 14 degrees here in Portland. I am moving to Guatemala very soon, but if you still haven't gotten any, I can send you a clump for postage.

Contact me next spring and I'll be able to perhaps give you a small clump of Fargesia rufa 'Green Panda'. It's growing like a weed at present, and I will actually WANT to thin it if it doesn't winter-kill at all.
