<< Yes, the bamboo law in CT is inconvenient. I am reducing the size of my Phyllostachys plantings. They do get a little overly vigorous at times. However, I am retaining all my other running bamboos like Borinda solidus?, S. palmata, Shibatea kumasaca, I. tesselatus, etc.
My P. nuda started flowering last summer, so maybe it will not be a problem to remove. This is the time when the clump-forming bamboos will become even more appreciated than they are now. They sure are beautiful! >>
