Flowering bamboo

Post by hampshire bamboo » Sat Apr 06, 2019 7:58 pm

Yorkshire Kris, I saw your youTube on Phyllostachys bambusoides castillonis flowering. Also David Attenboough on Fri eve.
My castillonis flowered in 2017, took pics in August. Then cut it down, as per RHS instructions..In 2018 I had two weak shoots, which have both flowered, so I think tht's the end of my clump!
Was this variation found/bred in about 1907? that assumes it flowers in 110 years like the non variegated P.bambusoides.
