We've had bamboo plants on our terrace in dry Madrid (Spain) for about 1 year. Over the summer, 2 of them died so we got them replaced by the gardener.

However, the new bamboo plants look different as you can see in the photos below. The leaves are darker and somehow longer.

The gardener says it's the same and it will eventually become the same color (when seasons change) but I doubt it. We have it now since 3 months and it hasn't changed much.

So, is this the same bamboo kind or a different one?

Thank you all very much!

I am not a bamboo authority, but they certainly look different to me; not just in color but also in the grouping of the leaves.
