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 fecunda *New

From China, this well-traveled clone of Bambusa fecunda was first sent from Taiwan to northern Thailand. It was then sent to the USDA for quarantine, was released in 2018, and is now test growing at Tropical Bamboo Nursery.
Per taxonomist Dieter Ohrnberger, it seems to be similar to Bambusa boniopsis; the latter considered synonymous by the Flora of China. However, Bambusa fecunda has culm sheaths without auricles, or with inconspicuous auricles, whereas in B. boniopsis the auricles are quite large.
We're growing the species adjacent to Bambusa boniopsis to confirm that they are two different species, as expected.
Should grow to 25' tall, 1" diameter culms in Florida
Minimum USDA zone: 9b.

We expect the same in the sub-tropical areas of the USA.
Its native habitat is lowland valleys of Guangxi province southern China. These are set amongst Karst Mountains with deep gorges.

Bambusa lako Inversa - Timor Green Bamboo

This bamboo is a natural mutation of Bambusa lako that occurred in our propagation fields. The standard Bambusa lako grows new culms that begin green then transition to black over about a six month period. Small vertical green stripes often remain on the black culms.
In 2015, a single specimen began producing the opposite color pattern - the culms remained green but black vertical stripes were left on most culms. This is an unusual and exciting feature that would stand out in any garden.
We isolated the inverted bamboo and monitored it for two years to ensure that it's unusual characteristic would br stable. Propagation began in 2018 and we're now have 3 gallon and 7 gallon sizes available.
Grows erect and arches at the top. Versatile in the landscape. Can be planted either as a specimen/focal point, in a row along a path/road/stream, or among other tropical foliage. From the Indonesian island of Timor. Slightly open clumper. 35'-45' tall with up to 3" dia. culms. Min. temp 27F. Min USDA zone 9b. Click to find your zone.

Bambusa malingensis - Maling or Seabreeze Bamboo

The culms are straight and form tight, dense clumps. This is a medium sized bamboo that grows quickly to create a nice screen. Small leaves and thick-walled culms help make it one of the most storm tolerant of the tropical bamboos. Some claim that it's more salt tolerant than most bamboos - it certainly is the best choice if exposed to coastal winds. 35' tall and 2" dia. culms. Min. temp 20F. Min USDA zone 9a.
