Phyllostachys Aur. Aureocaulis 'Golden Crookstem'
When weeding I was surprised to notice a vertical stick poking up on one of my hills in the oddest manner.
I went over to investigate and discovered that my bamboo, having behaved and stayed in the one place for many years, has decided to migrate.
Joshua is in the photo, holding the new bamboo, and you can see the mother clump to the right. And me going to all the trouble of planting persicaria on this hill last autumn when now maybe the bamboo is going to claim it!
