More Cold Hardy Planting
Bamboo Multiplex 'fernleaf' was planted against the neighbor's chainlink fence last fall. This was with the view of giving privacy to the backyard. The bamboo is cold hardy and made it through the January freeze just fine. It is a clumping variety that is also referred to as hedge bamboo. This spring it should thicken up some and by its third year in the ground it should reach its full potential. This weekend I added to this bed: 1 pineapple guava (feijoa selowiana), 4 loropetalum, and 11 flax lilies that were divided into 35 for a border.
