We're working on a special water system and are looking for some cold hardy bamboo. We're in NW Montana, at 5200 elevation with pretty long cold winters, but this is in a very large greenhouse, so it takes the edge off for sure.
I'm curious if anyone knows of varieties that may thrive in a colder climate- and it anyone has some for sale! Just some fresh rhizomes would suffice, we don't really need started plants.
And if not, we'd be looking for cold-hardy moisture-loving heavy-feeding plant alternatives.
After a little bit more research, I'm leaning towards Fargesia bamboos, being somewhat shorter and extra cold hardy- plus the varieties I've looked at so far are all clumping. Any leads on plants would be appreciated :)
Curse your sudden but inevitable betrayal! And this tiny ad too!
