New shoots aplenty in the Vivax grove

A restful spot in the Vivax grove

The Vivax Timber Running Bamboo (Phyllostachys vivax) began sending out new shoots toward the end of February.  In the picture above, a small shoot can be seen in front of the right chair.

Spring is an exciting time of year because it is the beginning of the above-ground growing season for bamboo.  Two new shoots are visible in this picture.

  1. I am so happy winter is over....our bamboo is coming back once again and becoming a nice green. We have Buddha's Belly Bamboo here and it does really well in our desert climate.
