[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note [French]
Flowering remains mysterious, it occurs with very long intervals (after 10,20,80 years even more d' one century!), often it is gregarious and touches the same species in the whole world The cause of flowering is still unexplained. After having flowered, thatches are desiccated. We think that exists an internal clock able to program flowering over the world. Often, the plant dies, sometimes leaving with its feet a sowing of new seedlings which will give a new generation of bamboos with a genetic variability, outcome with new cultivars.

Hi Didier,
Lovely collage!
Nicely done!

Bonjour Didier
Très belle composition et commentaire enrichissant sur cette plante peu commune chez nous, merci pour tes mots concernant la petite Camargue (sur TE)
il s'agissait pas de neige mais de givre.
Amicalement Robi

Bonjour Didier,
C'est une séquence très intéressante et bien réalisée. Ce ne sont pas les Bambous que les Panda mangent? Tu as été bien chanceux d'assister à cette floraison si rare. Chacune des photo est bien détaillée, composée et exposée. Merci!
