Free Bamboo

Post by needmore »

I'm going to be leaving my place in a few months and I am getting my house prepared to list soon. I'm a bit concerned that the bamboo will scare off some buyers so I'm going to cull many of my runners. I have some potted and some in ground that I'll be culling. Some are rare and I hate taking them to the landfill yard waste center so if someone nearby wants to fuss with it you can have some free plants.

Already potted:
Phy hispida
Phy edulis
Phy parvifolia
Phy vivax 'Huangwenzhu'
Phy bambusoides 'Albostriata'
Phy stimulosa
Phy varioauriculata
2 junky pots of different forms of C quadrangularis

In ground that you can dig huge hunks of:
Phy aurita
Phy aureosulcata 'Aureocaulis'
Phy aureosulcata 'Spectabilis'
Phy Shanghai 3
Phy primontina
Phy nigra 'Folsom' clone
Phy nigra 'Henon'
Phy viridis & Robert Young form
Phy parvifolia
Phy edulis
Phy vivax 'Huangwenzhu' plus inverse form
Phy bambusoides 'Albostriata'
Phy atrovaginata
Phy aurea & 'Koi' form
Phy fimbriligula
Phy acuta
Phy rutila
Pl maculatus - very fine bamboo
Pl hindsii - surprisingly large and pretty
Pl ground cover species 3 forms, maybe more
Semiarundinaria yashadake 'Kimmei'
Sasa palmata, megalophylla, asahinae, tsuboiana
LOTS of Hibanobambusa tranquillans 'Shiroshima' - about 7' tall here and still rising
Indocalamus hamadae- over 6' tall, also I longiaritus, I tesselatus
Shibatea lancifolia - wow, so pretty, also S chinensis

Take my entire F dracocephala 'Rufa', please

I can also share some divisions of sub tropical clumpers. Probably more that I'm not thinking of.

I didn't realize you had so many types in your "new" yard "already"! (Especially the runners)

I brought a lot of them out here from Indiana and then moved to a place where I can grow enough clumpers to hold my interest but I had large pots of runners so...

I sent you a PM. Might be interested in quite a few of them.

Wow. If I was still in the SF Bay area I would come by with my trailer and dig a lot of them up! But It is too far of a hike from north Oregon. I will forward to some friends in Anchor Bay and Redwood Valley and see if they want any. They are really nice people.

You seem to have moved around a lot. Last I looked you lived in the Sierra foothills. Now the other side of the Central Valley west of Sac'to? My old stomping grounds on the west side of the valley there. Cashe Creek, Clear Lake, Winters, Davis, St Helena, Napa, Lake B.
Happy trails...

Sorry, I no longer own the property where the plants are located.
