    Would Blue Henon be good bamboo? Wasn't sure if that was clumping or not... and I live in Idaho. It gets pretty cold here -10ish at times

    Michelle, I don't know Blue Henon bamboo. The cold tolerance is tricky for sure. We have a couple large clumpers (4"canes!) in our area that do well. I will have to check out the blue Henon. You should definitely look at Buddha Belly and Alphonse Karr clumpers. I think they will be tolerant in your climate.
