Stroll through Capitol Park (Sacramento)... and find a beautiful bamboo grove!

Posted Feb 08 2011 12:25am
Today, I took a longer way to head to my car (headed home) after a meeting at the Capitol Building through Capitol Park. I had heard of a really nice bamboo grove in Capitol Park (Downtown Sacramento) but had never encountered it.  Ironically, I had worked in downtown Sacramento for seven years (1998-2005) and had visited the Capitol Building for work several times a week but never encountered this bamboo grove.  Now, I go once a month or so and I found it, funny how things happen.

So...  walk down 13th and L St. (towards Capitol Park ) towards the bright white Capitol Dome and you'll see this

Phylostachys bambusoides 'Japanese Giant Timber Bamboo', immaculately maintained.

Up front, beautiful culms.

Picture perfect.

And an awesome grove of 'Cooking Bananas', biggest I have ever seen in this area.

Drop by Capitol Park, if you haven't seen this bamboo grove, it's worth seeking out.  A gem in the heart of Downtown Sacramento
