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.

Bambusa contracta *New

Relatively small, upright bamboo, comparable to the smaller B.textilis cultivars. We have been test-growing this bamboo for three years and the projected maximum height is around 20'.
At first glance, it appears to be a type of B.textilis until you step back and notice the overall height is not as tall as expected. The culms are noticeably thicker with shorter internodes than a textilis at the same height. The culms are more compact, or contracted, hence the species name.

Bambusa cornigera - Ox Horn Bamboo

Culms slightly zigzag, and internodes are slightly curved. The common name 'Ox Horn Bamboo' refers to the overall form of the culms as they emerge from the ground. Because the culms naturally bow outward, then upward, the new shoots truly resemble ox horns - especially when two new shoots oppose one another. Mostly a bamboo for collectors. Should grow to about 35' tall with 3" diameter culms. Min. USDA zone 9b. Click to find your zone.

Bambusa diaoluoshanensis *New

We're going to take our time describing this one (and also in pronouncing its name). The truth is, it's going to have to describe itself, over time.
It was collected from the South China Botanic Garden in Sept/2014. I was targeting other species and the garden workers kept directing me to B.diaoluoshanensis, insisting that I should try it in the USA. They thought it was special. I stared at it and didn't understand what made it so special.
We now have it our test-grow field (as of March/2015, released from USDA quarantine).
By 2017, I'll have a much better idea of what we have and will describe it in detail!
