My father planted bamboo brought from his family home some 55 years ago. I do not know the variety. He and I have since split up clumps to make large barriers, borders and backdrops all of which have multiplied over the years. They represent a very significant part of the flora in our garden and wood.
Last year they all flowered and looked very poorly. I can see no new growth this year. Is that it? Am I just left with, probably several million, bamboo canes or will there be any regrowth from the root stock?
I've tried to upload an image of the bamboo but the GW uploader seems not to be operating at the moment!
