BAMBOO my list/your list

Would anyone be interested in listing their have and/or wish lists? I'd like to see who is growing what and where.

I just got started last summer with some hardy ones, and only lost one out of 14. They all spent the winter in containers on the cold porch (glassed-in but unheated). I figure that gives them protection from drying winds and perhaps a zone more comfort?

The hardy ones are the 'running' kind, for the most part, so that's how they ended up planted in containers int he first place. I have added a few less-hardy ones recently, and plan to store them somewhere even more sheltered when temperatures drop.
