Bare bamboo culms...

With winter approaching, it always funny to see these bare culms up in the air, leafless, almost looking dead. These are on clumping bamboo (in this photo - Bambusa oldhamii 'Giant Clumping Timber Bamboo and Bambusa ventricosa 'Buddha's Belly Bamboo') that shoot in the late Summer/early Fall (opposite of their running cousins that shoot in the Spring). These new culms will harden over the winter and once temperatures sustain above 80 degrees, they will begin to leaf out, around May. With these culms shooting above the wall, the plant will create a nice privacy and sound barrier to the street behind us.
