Bambusa oldhamii - Oldham's Bamboo

The culms are straight and erect with relatively short branches forming fairly open clumps. A well-known, classic tropical bamboo. Can be found throughout the Disney parks. In Florida, there are no low branches. In California, the species branches almost to the ground. Culm walls are thick, but soft.

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 23' - 27' tall with about 1" dia. culms. Min. temp 15F. Min USDA zone: 8b.

Bambusa vulgaris 'Wamin' - Dwarf Buddha Belly Bamboo

A dwarf bamboo that is perfect by a pond but will fit just about any landscape. Swollen internodes are unusual and are sure to attract your visitors' attention. This bamboo could have been conjured up by Tim Burton or Dr. Seuss. In Florida (and other warm, humid areas) this species is much more reliable and consistent in producing swollen internodes (bellies) than the first species given the name Buddha Belly Bamboo, Bambusa ventricosa (tuldoides).
*If this bamboo is too cold sensitive for your location, we have an exciting new import that may become a good substitute for sub-tropical areas down to USDA zone 8b. Bambusa tuldoides "Swollen Internode'.
12' - 15' with up to 3" dia. culms. Min. temp 27F. Min USDA zone 9b. Click here to find zone.

Dendrocalamus elegans - Elegant Bamboo

From Thailand, Malaysia, & Langkawi Island. Grows on limestone hills and cliffs - should perform well in the alkaline soil of South Florida.
This cultivar was isolated amongst seedlings by Dieter Ohrnberger (author, The Bamboos of the World) in Chiang Mai, Thailand. We transported a propagule to Kunming, China in the summer of 2012 where it was shipped to USDA quarantine. Has been test-growing at Tropical Bamboo Nursery with wonderful results.
This is a delicate, smaller bamboo with small leaves. It shouldn't exceed 15' tall and will work well in containers or small spaces. The thin culms are silver/grey and the thin, feathery foliage cascades beautifully.
