Aulonemia ulei BBM20.BR11 (Charles Boulanger) (picture right and left)  Interesting and handsome dwarf. This bamboo can survive temperatures that go down till -14 C. This bamboo is growing till the top of Pico da Bandeira, 2892 m. Maybe some plants will be avaiable in the Autumn. 3 liter 95 euro.
Chusquea culeou 'Vilches Alto' (picture left) In 2008 Ned Jaquith send me some Chusquea seeds that were collected from the wild by Mike Remmick in Vilches Alto, Chile (central Chile, high elevation). Two seedlings survived for a long time in a pot but they didn’t look very healthy. I planted one of them out and it recovered, surviving
some not very cold winters. Now this wonderful bamboo with purple culms, even in the shade, attracts attention of many visitors. I had lost the collecting information
about this seedling but now, thanks to Noah Bell, I have got it back and even have a name.  Hardy between 12 and 15 °C.
Available: 5 liter 95 euro.
Chusquea ibiramae (CH) BBM19 BR 216  (picture right) 
This one and the next 3 interesting Chusqueas were collected in Brazil in 2019 by Charles Boulanger. Some (maybe all) were collected around a mountain in south Brasilia, Pico da Bandeira (2892 meter). And some of these can survive that temperatures. It is strange that none of the leaves of this 5 species show any tessellation in the leaves that normally is needed to survive freezing temperatures. Maybe these bamboos have had their own evolution to survive frost. This mountain is like an island surrounded with tropical forest far away from the cold resistant Andes Chusqueas. In the future we will know more about the hardiness. There is no picture of the seedling Chusquea microphylla. Exept  for Ch. microphylla these bamboos are for sale in June. 5 liter 85 euro

Phyllostachys iridescens 'Heterochroma'  (picture right) and 'Holochrysa (picture left)

Correction: This is what I wrote: This recently discovered Chinese bamboo that is imported into Europe can produce canes with unpredictable colors. Sometimes this chameleon is green, many times yellow and also yellow with a green sulcus is possible.

This is what I write now after a talk with Stéphane (Newfi) who imported these two new Phyllostachys iridescens forms,  'Heterochroma' and  ‘Holochrysa’. You can compare ‘Holochrysa’ and 'Heterochroma'  with Phyllostachys aureosulcata ‘Aureocaulis’ and  ‘Spectabilis’. Phyllostachys iridescens  ‘Holochrysa’ is totally yellow (with some light stripes that are the mark of Ph. iridescens) and  'Heterochroma' is yellow with a green sulcus. Sometimes but not often (not so often as I thought)  they mutate in each direction but usually they stay stable. Both are equal important new clones. The plant that I had got and propagated  was mislabeled Phyllostachys iridescens  'Heterochroma'.  
So, all  the plants that I sold till now were the totally yellow form Phyllostachys iridescens 'Holochrysa'
(picture left).  All the names should be changed.
Hardyness: -18/-20 °C.

Phyllostachys nigra 'Kiyoshi' (picture up right, Noah Bell) Bizarre plant from 'Bamboo Garden'. The leaves are fine variegated and some culms are green yellow with green lines. Later they can get some black nigra coloration. It was a gift from Mr. Kiyoshi to 'Bamboo Garden'. Height 6-10 m., sun till half shadow, hardy between -16/-20°C.   Maybe more. In the USA there were some new interesting mutations that were found in this unstalble plant. In the future it could be a source of new mutations
