    Just phoned Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens nursery to ask if they had any, only to be told that indigenous bamboo does not exist. Ha! The search continues. If anyone finds a source, please share!

    I have one in a pot. unfortunaly my location is Germany. Bergbamboo is trade in specialized nurseries over Europe. only hardy in western Germany. It is difficult to go where its grows and dig a part of?
