We've recently had both at our Central Florida homestead and our many clumping bamboo plants have responded to the rain and high temperatures by sending out an explosion of new shoots.
|The prolific Seabreeze Bamboo (Bambusa malingensis) sends out more new shoots than any other clumping variety|
|The colorful green and yellow striped shoot of Asian Lemon Timber Bamboo are so pretty when they emerge|
|Blue Timber Bamboo is another prolific shooter with shades of pink, light blue and purple in the baby canes|
It's always exciting to see new shoots emerge. Even after 21 years of growing bamboo, I'm never tired of watching bamboo grow!
