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