Bamboos From seed
• Since bamboos flower so infrequently growing
from seed is a rare opportunity.
• It however is a mixed blessing as the parent
plants often perish.

Fargesia murielae Simba
Although not a new seedling it is of the
new generation and this picture shows
one of our clumping bamboos can be
used as a dwarf if needed
Transitioning to Sports
• Sports are sometimes found in
seemingly healthy plants, but a couple
of our more spectacular sports were
the result of flowering.
•Most of our exciting new bamboos have come
from overseas. Wild collected or from
nurseries and collectors is Europe or Asia.
