I am sorry for this delayed reply to your gardening question. The spring rush has brought a deluge of questions and we are working hard to catch up!

I suspect that you are describing the plant called "curly bamboo" or "lucky bamboo" which is actually a type of Dracaena a tropical houseplant. Those plants could not take freezing temperatures.

Thanks for the question. Best wishes for a wonderful gardening season. Please stop in again soon!
