A little late?

I've been growing bamboo for a few years now, and the emergence of the year's new shoots in the Spring is one of the most exciting times in the garden! Things are a little slower this year than last, probably because it's been a bit colder this year, but I should start seeing more shoots any day now.

This Fargesia dracocephala 'Rufa' (also referred to as Fargesia rufa) is one of my earliest shooters. The shoots are so fun and happy looking, aren't they? These are small shoots -- less than 1/4" in diameter -- but they are just a teaser for the larger bamboo shoots that some of my other plants will be producing in the next few weeks. ***
