The plants are just beautiful, and I want to minimize my chance of losing any.
they dont look exactly like basjoo but I am not sure someone else may can tell
my suggestion would dig and store all but one clump and cut it down after the first frost leaving 6 in of sudostem then cover the with mulch and a piece of plastic to keep it somewhat drier if it comes back next spring you will know you can leave them all in the ground
