No... I got them from various nurseries in MA“Running” bamboo can be invasive. “Clumping” bamboo generally is not invasive.

I’m not sure... there were 80 different ones I put in. I do love the dwarf Japanese white pines... Pinus parviflora. I had ‘Adcocks Dwarf’, ‘Arnold Arboretum’ and ‘Fuku Zu Mi’. I was also pretty fond of the Pinus densiflora ‘Oculus Draconis’ (Dragon’s Eye Pine) on the top of the berm in the last photo. I had several Cryptomeria also and the miniatures are very cool.Beautiful!
Love those rocks! I don't know how expensive those boulders are in MA but it will cost a fortune in southern Delaware(we have no mountain, no rocks but beaches and sands)
What are your top five favorite conifer plants in this garden?
Hi Tom-DEI love Japanese white pine(P. parviflora) also. I had one in my old house and it was a spectacular specimen with 3 nice branches/multi trunks. The Japanese umbrella pine(Sciadopitys verticillata) is another favorite of mine. I had to leave both of them behind when we sold that house...I finally added the umbrella pine to my current garden two years ago...I am still trying to find a good Japanese white pine locally.
Another conifer that I really like is the Hinoki Cypress(Cham. obtusa) and I have a few varieties in my garden.
Yes... the Southern Magnolia is hardy where I was. A couple years after that photo we had a very heavy wet snow that broke it off just above the ground and I never got around to planting another.Hi, Phred, Just saw a southern magnolia(assuming) in your landscape. Is it truly hardy in MA.? (not sure what agriculture zone you were in MA).
