It saddens me to say, I have complete and total death of my Parker’s Giant. This years new shoots were looking great and putting out new healthy-looking branches and leaves. Then the flowers started to slowly take over until it’s completely covered. Guess I’ll dig up the dead carcass this spring and replace it with something new. B. Doli ‘blue’ I guess

I am sorry to her that, and was hoping for some form of recovery, but I am now beginning to really believe that this bamboo is toast. What a shame for such a large size tropical clumper with impressive cold tolerance. We must have hit 27f this year, and have burn on D. asper and giganteus, while this did not have so much as burned leaf tips. Looked perfect.
