Phyllostachys aureosulcata 'Spectabilis.' The common name is 'Golden Zig-Zag.' The shoots are a wine red blush that fade to gold with a green groove. Fast growing and hardy to -20F

Fargesia robusta, our first bamboo to shoot in late winter or early spring, is a hardy clumping bamboo. It is hardy to -20F and has somewhat persistant culm shealths that display alternating bands of white and green. One of the taller Fargesia species, it tops out at 16 feet.

These photos of Phyllostachys vivax shows it first shooting. It is not unusual for this species to shoot 14-18 inches per day. Here in the Northwest it can obtain heights of 50 feet.

This photo of Black Bamboo (Phyllostachys nigra) shows a vine of Morning Glory growing up and around the culm.

Phyllostachys vivax 'Aureocaulis' gets every bit as big and tall as its relative, straight green vivax.

Pleioblastus viridistriatus is a beautiful 'bush bamboo.' It gets about three feet in height with leaves of vivid yellow and random green avacado stripes. Pleioblastus viridistriatus makes an excellent container plant for the patio.
