another new bamboo

Post by miketropic » Sun Jan 20, 2013 2:12 am

I got this for free in a mix up on ebay so I am very happy with it. suppose to do well in our cold winters but I have heard it is a really nasty bamboo and you will never be rid of it once its get established in the ground...oh well a little bamboo never hurt anyone...Sasa Veitchii
