BAMBOO - TROPICAL LIST

This section lists the tropical bamboo plant varieties we have in production. They are all tropical, or sub-tropical, clumping bamboos and are generally not cold-hardy like the temperate, running bamboos. Some, the sub-tropicals, can tolerate freezing temperatures for short periods. Check the minimum temperatures listed on each species description as a guideline for which species can grow unprotected in your area.
Use our Search Bamboo page to find something specific.

Neololeba atra - Iron Range Bamboo *New

Formerly known as Bambusa forbesii. A beautiful bamboo native to Australia (Iron Ranges) and New Guinea. It is tight clumping with very large leaves. More of an understory bamboo and prefers some shade or warm protected areas. Not at all frost tolerant. Beautiful as a patio plant, in containers.
We imported this species from Australia in 2011 primarily to compare and distinguish it from Bambusa atra. They are similar in overall form but the most noticeable difference is the occasional leaf variegation and culm striation on B.atra. Neither is present on N.atra. The leaves on N.atra are also larger (especially wider).
May each about 15' tall with 1/2" dia culms in Florida. Min. temp 30°F. Min USDA zone: 10. Click to find your zone.

Otatea acuminata ssp. aztecorum - Mexican Weeping Bamboo

The long narrow leaves are produced in such abundance that they almost completely obscure the culm. A very distinct cascading fountain appearance. Prefers a drier environment than most tropical bamboos. Fairly drought tolerant but irrigation is still recommended for a healthy appearance - a drip system rather than an overhead system. Usually grows to about 15' but can grow to 20' tall with 3/4" dameter culms in Florida. Cold-hardy to 15 degrees F. Min USDA zone: 9a. Click to find your zone.

Oxytenanthera abyssinica (braunii) - Wine Bamboo *New

A new introduction to our nursery. Originally from the savannas of tropical Africa, this plant is relatively drought tolerant for a bamboo, becoming semi-deciduous in dry conditions. Looks beautiful in moist and humid conditions. Though called the wine bamboo, the alcoholic beverages brewed from this plant are more similar to beer. Should grow to 30' with 2.5" diameter culms. Minimum temp 30 degrees F. Min USDA zone: 10. Click to find your zone.

Schizostachyum aciculare *New

Imported in 2011, released to us by the USDA in 2012, this species promptly went into gregarious flower in early 2013. Bamboos of the genus Schizostachyum are unique in that they always exhibit flowers but rarely produce seed. This flowering episode was much different in that our specimen became leafless under the stress of flowering. Seeds were produced and we were able to germinate several. New generation plants of the species are now growing at Tropical Bamboo Nursery & Gardens.
Mostly found in Thailand but also in Viet Nam and Malaysia.
Will grow to about 25' tall with 1" diameter culms. Minimum temp. 30 degrees F. Min USDA zone: 9b. Click to find your zone.

Schizostachyum brachycladum 'Ratchaphruek' *New

The name 'Ratchaphruek' alludes to the botanic garden, Royal Flora Ratchaphruek, Chiang Mai, where this variety grows. Called phai khiao amon in Thailand, which translates to 'bamboo green immortal God'.
This is a stunning, ornamental bamboo with bright yellow-striped green stems - best as a solitary specimen. Grows well in full sun on moist soil, or in partial shade. It is extremely rare, even in Thailand. We imported it from Chiang Mai, Thailand in 2012 and a single plant was released to us from USDA quarantine in 2014.
We now have very limited stock of 3 gallon plants.
Very tropical - will not survive temperatures below freezing. Min USDA zone: 10. Click to find your zone.

Schizostachyum brachycladum Yellow Form - Sacred Bali Bamboo

Bright Yellow with occasional vertical green stripes on culms. Large leaves with occasional vaieagation. Striking bamboo. Tight clumping, few low branches. Has been described as being extremely tropical and unable to survive temperatures even approaching freezing. After many years of observation in South Florida, we have found the species to be no more sensitive than many other of our tropical bamboos when exposed to short-term temps near freezing. It can be, however, unforgiving if planted in less than ideal growing conditions. Specimens can languish for years then, when moved to a better location in the same garden, quickly thrive. 35' with 2" culms in Florida. Min. temp 30°F. Min USDA zone: 10. Click to find your zone.
