Digging season -
We have found that the best time to dig species in the Phyllostachys genus is late October to early November.

Species in this genus are sometimes dug in June and ready to be planted in September. This dig timing depends on an abundance of rain. A summer drought eliminates the possibility of a June dig.

Occasionally the digging season for this genus can begin as soon as April, provided that the groves haven't received too much winter wind burn. To be on the safe side, orders for species in this genus should be placed before April 15th.

They would be dug between April and November. The timing of a bamboo dig is very weather dependent, with the most likely case being late October for this genus.

Being bright yellow with green stripes make this a very ornamental bamboo! New culms can also briefly have streaks of red in full sun during the early summer.

Despite its name, 'Harbin-Inversa' is not a sport of 'Harbin' since it lacks the ridges exhibited by 'Harbin'.

We've noticed that 'Harbin-Inversa' seems to be a faster grower and possibly ever so slightly more wind tolerant than 'Harbin'.
