'Shiroshima' Bamboo with Peony 'Charm'304 viewsIn the foreground is a bamboo, Hibanobambusa tranquillans 'Shiroshima'. The flower in the background is a variety of herbaceous peony called 'Charm'. The flower form is Japanese pom-pom. These two show stoppers never fail to look great together.

While the larger types of bamboo don't usually do well when combined with smaller plants, the smaller species of bamboo such as this 'Shiroshima' do great and look amazing when combined with other plants of bright, contrasting colors!

Phyllostachys aureosulcata 'Spectabilis'320 viewsThis bamboo is less cold hardy than P. nuda or bissetii, but it's still one of my favorites. Who couldn't love that striking color? It does well here in zone 5, but does top-kill a lot of winters. It returns faithfully each spring and grows to a good 15' in only a few weeks time in early to mid spring.
