Bashania qingshengshanensis : amazingly hardy

Amazing message from inland Sweden about Bashania qingshengshanensis:

Hi Hans (and team?)

A couple of years ago (2008?) I bought a small division of Bashania q. from you. In the years it has survived -30C twice since then. A fullgrown Rhododendron catawbiense froze to death but the bamboo was unharmed. My garden is outside of Skövde at 200m elevation. The great news is that the new shots are nearly 2,5cm in diameter. If this is what I hope this is not only at least as hardy as Fargesia murielae but also much bigger. Did I mention it spreads aggressivly? No other bamboo do that in my climate, not even Sasa palmata or S.kurilensis.

Of course this is not impressive in the Netherlands but here in inland Sweden its something different.

Best regards

Ludvig Johansson

Magnolia grandiflora


Long flowering evergreen Magnolias flourish at de Groene Prins. Their wonderful fragrance is a delightful surprize to many. It’s a mystery why this hardy tree is still not well known.

Hedychium Rubra


Gorgeous Hedychium Rubra was the most stunning ornamental ginger last summer.
We still do have a few young plants in stock!

We ship only on pallets to some countries

Young Lagerstroemia after “inspection” by Swedish customs … Due to security inspections made by customs in some countries (i.e. Belgium or Sweden), we do not send parcels anymore as the delay and the inspection method causes severe harm to the plants. We regret this situation and hope you understand. Shipping plants on pallets is safe, however, as this allows free visual inspection. after customs inspection
