Bamboo Shooting Season Here We Grow Again

Bamboo Shooting Season Nears And Here We Grow Again

Bamboo Shooting Season

Bamboo Shooting Season

With the onset of winter comes the building excitement for bamboo shooting season and here we grow again. Within the next couple of months bamboo shooting season will begin. And I can’t wait because I may just see some 2 inch diameter canes. Coming out of my 15-year-old grove of Phyllostachys aureosulcata.  Yellow groove bamboo. I now have 39 different species. And I’m still looking for more. My goal is to have 50 species by the end of 2013.

Bamboo Shooting Season First To Grow

Bamboo shooting is a great site to see. Because at the end of march the bamboo shooting begins. And by the end of June, the new shoots will be over 30 ft. tall. It will be insane to watch it grow that fast. It amazes me every year. The next to shoot will be P. Aureosulcata “Aureocaulis” or the solid yellow version of yellow groove. Same hardiness and same growth habits. Just a little later to shoot and size-up. Next comes the ground cover bamboo shooting there are quite a few of these. Next will be the Pseudosasa Japonica or arrow bamboo. It always looks great. Very tropical looking with its large palm like leaves. Next is the Phyllostachys Nigra or Black bamboo it shoots green shoots that later turn black after about 6 months to a year. I should see some nice canes from these this year. Next will be Phyllostachys Rubromarginata and the Phyllostachys Vivax Aureocaulis and then comes the Phyllostachys Atrovaginata and Phyllostachys Nuda and then Aurea. The last 2 to shoot are my Phyllostachys Bambusoides”Castillon” and Finally Arundinaria Gigantea. And by this time the gardens have completely changed and closed in just a bit more. A bit more privacy and a lot more beauty. After a nice winter nap it will be time to say here we grow again.
