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 sp. 'Richard Waldron'

This species was originally distributed as a seedling of Bambusa edulis. Although bamboo seedlings do tend to vary significantly from the parent plant, this bamboo has turned out to be anything but a product of B.edulis. The seed source might remain a mystery but the resultant plant is a charming little bamboo. It is a small, delicate fountain of wispy canes and tiny leaves. It has been named to honor the late Richard Waldron. Some people are calling it 'Ladyfinger Bamboo'. Will grow to 10' with 1/4" diameter culms in Florida. Minimum temp. 21 degrees F.

Bambusa sp. Gideon's Blue *New

This bamboo was one of many bamboos and plants accumulated over decades by South Florida plant collector, Michael Gideon. It is the most-interesting of his unidentified bamboos. Culms are steel-blue green with a light powder bloom. Leaves are small and thin. It looks to us like a hybrid of Bambusa membranacea.

Bambusa sp. New Guinea Black *New

A samaller bamboo for gardens. It has very dark green culms that darken to a mottled black color with age. The New Guinea Black is a good alternative to Bambusa Lako, which is sometimes too large for smaller gardens. The form is similar to Bambusa lako but grows to only about 1/2 the mature size.
Note: This is one of our new bamboos that we've imported into USDA quarantine. It was released to us in 2012 and will be available after 2013.

Will grow to 20' with 1" diameter culms in Florida. Minimum temp. 29 degrees F. Min USDA zone: 9a. Click to find your zone.

Bambusa sp. Phai Liang Wan (Honey Bamboo) *New

Imported by us (into USDA quarantine) in July/2012, this bamboo was found in northern Thailand. Locally, it was called Phai Liang Wan,or Phai Thwa (Honey Bamboo) as it is prized for its sweet shoots. Its appearance and form indicates it surely is a regional clone of Bambusa nana.

Bambusa suberecta - Jesse Durko Bamboo

A beautiful, relatively small-growing ornamental bamboo that has both variegated leaves and striated culms. For years, the identity of this Thai import had us stumped. Recently, I found a grower in Thailand who had it labeled as Arundinaria suberecta. The A.B.S. references that as a common mistake and corrects the species ID as Bambusa suberecta. Will grow to 20'-25' tall with thin 1" dia. culms. Somewhat bushy in form. It remains quite rare in the United States. Min USDA zone: 9b. Click to find your zone.

Bambusa subtruncata

Yellowish green longitudinal streaks on lower internodes. Not a large-growing tropical bamboo - may reach 20' tall.
This bamboo species was once imported by the FCC/ABS in the mid-1990s. No positively identified specimens could be located so we re-imported from China in November/2012. Will be available in 2015.

Bambusa textilis gracilis - Graceful Bamboo

A beautiful all-green bamboo that's often planted in a row to create a privacy hedge or screen. Also makes a delicate focal point in the garden when planted as a single specimen. Foliage cascades gracefully with leaf tips pointing downward. This would be the ideal bamboo to plant as a screen in similar applications as Areca palms or ficus are used. For this type of application, they are planted in a row 3 to 5 feet apart. Spacing depends on how dense and how quickly you need your hedge. About 20' - 25' tall with about 1" dia. culms. Min. temp 15°F. Min USDA zone: 8b.

This is the largest-growing variety of textilis. It has reached 50' tall and it is hardy to just below 20 degrees F. Min USDA zone: 8b. Click to find your zone.
