I think my transplanted bamboo is in shock. It's turning yellow and some of the culms have died.
I'm hoping it's just sulking and that it will survive. July probably wasn't the best time to put it to the test, but I'm keeping it well watered and it hasn't been crazy hot. I'm hoping the yellowed culms will rebound just like the other transplanted plants I've fretted about this summer.
The oakleaf hydrangea that I moved was sulky for a good month or so and now it's blooming, something it rarely did in its old spot. I think it's going to be much, much happier here.
The blacklace elderberry I moved has completely recovered and I expect it should enjoy the extra space and lessened competition. Now I just need to plant something contrasting behind it so you can actually see it.
Has anyone had their bamboo turn yellow and recover? Is this a lost cause?
