    You have a nice assortment of Japanese maples.

    I really love the bamboo. I especially like the Phyllo. atrovaginata, it is one of the truly winter hardy bamboos. I have it growing here in zone 5, and it does really well. For me it averages 12 feet tall, and is unlikely to get more than 25 feet tall even after many years. How tall does it get for you in your warmer zone 7?

    The Phyllostachys nigra is outstanding. I wish it did better near me. The farthest north it grows well in the USA is about Saint Louis.

    I haven't tried P. vivax yet. It could be successful here.

    Couldn't you grow this in a big pot and move it to a protected area/unheated garage in the winter?
