My all-time favorite bamboo... Teague's Blue Bamboo

You know its always a pleasure roaming about my garden as I always seem to find a pleasant surprise.  In the deep shade of my backyard, protected from the intense Sacramento area sun, I have a treasure of a bamboo plant, Himalayacalamus  hookerianus 'Teague's Blue Bamboo'.  Named after the late Bill Teague, a horticulturist and plant propagator from the San Diego area, this plant is one of the most beautiful in my book, among all plants.

A 20 foot tall clumping bamboo, it is a good ornamental variety that does best with mostly shade, especially in our normally scorching Sacramento summers.

This is what I stumbled upon today and made my little Bamboo Geek heart go pitter-patter:

Gotta love it, quite beautiful!
