These plants are supposed to be hardy - I've never yet managed to get one through a winter here in London. I know that here, they're shortlived perennials, but my experience has been that "shortlived" equates to "one season only".
Don't cut, as Cliffo says - I'd be interested to hear if it survives your winter.

Bamboo in this country we are noted for a damp clymet' and I belive that the damp cold 'dose a lot of damage, I know it dose to me, may be Pennsylvania has a dry cold,

Maybe that's why Cliffo, but i'd like to know if it survives over there. Know what you mean about the damp not being good for humans either - aggravates arthritis I think.
