I have a 25 gallon pot of Semiarundinaria Red Fall , two years old eight feet tall perhaps. I don't have room to plant it out.
I have one smaller spare going down to David Arnold at some point . Markj has it so I can get a spare in Europe. Anyway if someone wants the 25 gallon they can have it , it's heavy :D
Best Wishes
Steve

I planted one out a few years back and it top killed, have been container growing it since. Never, ever seen any hint of red at all but it is a very interesting looking bamboo. Heavy foliage with short branches, looks rather cannabis-like. Visitors often comment on attractive it is. Looks like a very well grown A gigantea.

Hi Brad , I like the plant a lot but I had a hard think about where to plant it and came up blank.
Shame to let it go to waste. It was Winter damaged in the first Winter , this Winter it came through fine and it was way worse here, go figure, a bit more mature help.

Yeah, that genus tends to eat up the ground space in a hurry.

It would run I guess, my fastuosa in France ran like mad until I barriered it. Fastuosa is one of my favorite Bamboos. really great Windbreak. If no one wants the big plant locally I guess I could divide it and have a stock of them . Seems a shame to not have it planted out whole.

If this is still available I will happily adopt it. (I emailed you (the OP) as well)
