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.

Guadua angustifolia 'Less Thorny'

The genus of this bamboo has been recently changed to Chloothamnus. Tropical Bamboo Nursery will reference both Nastus and Chloothamnus to avoid confusion.

Neohouzeaua mekongensis

This is a medium sized bamboo from the Mekong delta in Vietnam. Large leaves and bushy growth habit. We've seen this bamboo in SE Asia and at bamboo nurseries Australia and it never matches the specific published taxonomic descriptive feature of tiny leaves. Not sure if it was a publishing mistake or a collection mistake, years ago, but the bamboo we're growing is the same as I found everywhere else.
Will grow about 17' tall with 1/2" diameter culms in Florida. Minimum temp. 30 degrees F. Min USDA zone: 9b. Click to find your zone.

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 acuminata - Dwarf Mexican Weeping Bamboo

Like Otatea acuminate aztecorum, this small bamboo develops a very distinct cascading fountain appearance. It also 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.
Besides maturing to a smaller overall size than O.acuminata aztecorum, an identifying feature is the culm sheaths. These are shorter and never intersect each other on the culms. The culm sheaths on O.acuminata aztecorum most often overlap, exposing very little, if any, of the green culm between the sheaths. This is the easiest way to tell the difference between the two related subspecies at any age.
Usually grows to about 8' in Florida. Cold-hardy to 21 degrees F.
Min USDA zone: 9a.

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.
