Bamboo, quick

A few hours of watering with a thunderstorm that wouldn't quite make it to my yard visible (and audible) just to the southeast of me, and I'm worn out.

But there are still nice things to see in the garden, especially the large-leaved bamboo!


These haven't required any supplemental water, and now that the leaves have finished coming in they are laying down and looking fantastic! That top photo is Indocalamus longiauritus.

This one is Sasaella bitchuensis, with Phyllostachys bissetii in the background:

And finally, Sasa veitchii:

That plant is difficult to transplant, but is doing well in this well-shaded spot, and looks fantastic mixed with the variegated vinca! (I'm glad that's true and not just me trying to convince myself to reduce the amount of work I'd have to do.)

Sorry for the short post!

We are having the "storms to the west, storms to the north, storms to the south, no rain here!" problem as well. So the hose and I are becoming good friends. I find I do get more efficient the more I water - knowing just where to pull the hose next and how far I can reach.

Beautiful bamboo!

These do look fantastic! The Sasaella bitchuensis I received from you looks great in our backyard (it's in a shallow bowl) but it needs to be divided this fall. It grows VERY fast!
