Off topic with apologies

Today it became apparent that we have a bamboo - Fargesia nitida - which is flowering itself to death. 

I wondered if anyone else has heard of this species flowering elsewhere as I understand flowering in bamboo, 
by species, is pretty universal regardless of where in the world it happens.  In due course I will gather up as 
much seed as seems sensible for use here in our nursery at Auchgourish Botanic Garden however if anyone 
else has a notion to grow some pretty 'grass' do let me know although I doubt it would be much use in a roll up.
