Re: Bamboo


No- it's my error Kitty.  The tag is outside and I keep forgetting to look at
it.  Maybe a Rufa Bamboo?  And I finally found my Miscanthis Sinensis today, a
Zebrenthis <sp?>.  We aren't sure it's alive though.  I told them I'd try it
and keep an eye on it.  It may yet be dormant.  Rain might be nice!!  My toads
have been singing since late afternoon.

I did a search and came up with nothing on Rufus Bamboo except a bird called
a rufus that eats insects off bamboo.  Geez I hate it when companies create
names.  Glad the plant is working for you.
