Pleioblastus distichus: This is a new one off a trade which is a ground cover, and just starting to make some small shoots.
Pleioblastus viridistriatus: Here's another ground cover started from rhizomes also from a trade.
Sasaella masamuneana 'Albostriata': Anoter GC this one also from the same trade
Phyllostachys Aureosulcata Spectabilis "green grove" These guys are also from trade, and it seems to propagate pretty easily from bare rhizomes. One of them had a couple of small culms on it, but with full sun, all of them will bush out nicely and get established in their pots. The is supposed to be one of the more aggressive of the running bamboos in the phyllostachys genus.
Shibatea Kumasaca, Bear's claw bamboo: Tis is from a different trade, and also a ground cover however it has a unique leaf form from the rest.
Here's a quick update on the shoots off my larger plants.
Phyllostachy Dulcis, Sweet shoot. This is probably going to be my largest bamboo this year since this one is at 1 inch and still increasing in diameter. They generally bulk up in diameter until they are a few inches high, and I had to dig through the mulch to get this shot.
Phyllostachys Parvifolia: Here's my first in-ground shoot. Not very impressive, only at around 2/3 inch, but it's definitely not done expanding in diameter yet, and there are many on the way so I might get some 1 inchers.
Phyllostachys Propinqua Beijing: This one has 1 shoot so far showing some increase in size from the fall shoots that reached 6ft, so this one may get up to 10 if I'm lucky.
