hi dieter:

i am growing phylostachis bissetii, which is edible and very hardy. a  
friend of mine - who gave me the Ph. bissetii grows 60 or 70 species  
just outside vienna, e.g. Ph. nigra var. henon, Ph. aureosculata, Ph.  
aurea, Ph. viridiglaucescens, also several Sasa, Pseudosasas, Fargesia  
etc. (see his whole list on http://www.tillandsia.at/bambusbestandsliste.htm 
  - but there he also list a few that he tried and that didn't make  
the winters)

he is interested in expandind his collection and i swapping. if you
