Bambusa contracta - Solitude Bamboo

Relatively small, upright bamboo, comparable to the smaller B.textilis cultivars. We have been test-growing this bamboo for several 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.
When several are planted in a row, this species makes an excellent privacy screen. Spacing can be between 3'-5' apart, depending on the density wanted. Min USDA zone: 9a. Click here to find zone.

Bambusa guangxiensis - Chinese Dwarf Bamboo

Very dense and bushy. Perfect for creating a dense hedge, ideally trimmed up to 8' in height. It can easily be kept to a lower height by trimming the tops. Untrimmed, it should reach 25'+ tall. Creates a fantastic hedge to block out the neighbors or unsightly fence! Also works well in containers, as a patio plant. This bamboo has become a high-demand hedge plant in Australia. 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.
New import.
Min. temp reports vary, most between 24-28F - it seems to be a true tropical to us and would likely suffer at temps below freezing. Min USDA zone: 9a.Click here to find 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.

Bambusa multiplex 'Rosa'

This bamboo was discovered in 2012 and wild-collected in Yunnan, China. It was sent to USDA quarantine and has been test-growing at Tropical Bamboo Nursery since 2013.
It grows similar in form and leaf size to B.multiplex 'Stripestem Fernleaf' or B.multiplex 'Riviereorum' however, the culms are mostly varying shades of pink to red. There are not many bamboos that maintain this amount of stable, red culm coloration. This was a rare find that is already being targeted by collectors.
A small bamboo that would work well in a garden of any size or in containers.

Will grow to 5-8' tall with 1/4" diameter culms. Minimum temp. 18 degrees F. Min USDA zone: 9a, maybe 8b. Click here to find zone
