Clumping Bamboo Shoot

This will be year 3 for my clumping bamboo.  The reason I chose this variety is because it won’t spread too far.

I’ve never grown bamboo before so I didn’t know what to expect.  For a while it didn’t do much growing and then after a few spring rain, this little bamboo shoot came out of nowhere.

One thing I do know about bamboo is that they can grow fast.  So a few days later I saw this long skinny bamboo stalk growing as tall as the parent plant.  For someone that has never grown bamboo, this was really exciting to see!

Another thing that also enjoyed the spring rain is the Wonderful pomegranate bush.  There seem to be more blooms this  year, so that’s a good sign.
