Just a look around

I haven't had much time to do anything in the garden this week, nor have I had much time to put together an informative post.

I did take a bunch of photos of my yard the other day, so today you just get a look around. Enjoy!


Leaning out the bedroom window to get this shot. Driveway is below me.

Semiarundinaria okuboi bamboo on right. (This one got the trench.)

The hyacinth bean vines are all looking fantastic! 
This is the view my neighbor has of my yard. I don't get to see this.

Two of my favorite bamboos:
Hibanobambusa tranquillans 'Shiroshima' with the creamy leaves
Indocalamus sp. 'Solidus' with the green leaves

This edge of my yard is looking great. I hope the tall black bamboo
(Phyllostachys nigra) makes it through the winter in good shape.

If you have any questions about plants, please ask in the comments!

Wow, what a lush oasis! Absolutely stunning. Everything is so green, it almost hurts my eyes.

What bamboo is that in the wooden planter box, (this image)?

That's Phy. aureosulcata 'aureocaulis'. Nice, isn't it? It will be even better when it puts on a bit more size (next year I hope).

Your garden is very lush and healthy looking. Thanks for the tour.
Re: photos 5 & 6 that appear side-by-side, what is the vine - at least it appears to be one vine - that has two differently colored leaves, one a purple and the other a yellow-green? Reminds me of a potato vine, but mine doesn't have that bi-coloring.

sandy: that *is* a sweet potato vine... although I'm not sure of the exact variety. My favorite is "Sweet Caroline", but this wasn't that. Something similar though. The leaves start out dark and fade to a lighter color.

Thanks, Alan! I'm going to look for that variety of potato vine. It's gorgeous.
