Bambusa textilis purpurescens - Purple Textilis Bamboo *New

A distinct variety of Bambusa textilis that develops purple/black culms.
The culms darken over a much longer period than Bambusa lako or Gigantochloa atroviolacea. Each new shoot takes up to a year after culm development to complete the darkening process. Sunlight, even filtered sunlight, is important to develop the dark culms. Any culms that are fully shaded will remain green.

Since 2012, we've made seven attempts to import this bamboo, each time the propagules not surviving the import process. Finally, in 2016, another attempt succeeded. Two offsets were collected at South China Botanic Garden and sent to USDA quarantine. These were cleared and released in 2018. They're now growing in our test field and propagation began in 2020.

These are now available, first come first served.



About 25' - 30' tall with about 1 1/2" dia. culms. Min. temp 15F. Min USDA zone: 8b.

Bambusa tuldoides - Punting Pole Bamboo

Similar to Bambusa tulda but not as large and more hardy. It produces a large number of thick-walled culms growing in a tight clump.

Bambusa tuldoides cv 'Swollen Internode' - Cool Buddha *New

For those who live in southern areas of the USA, but not far south enough to grow the frost-sensitive Bambusa vulgaris Wamin, this may be your solution!
Bambusa vulgaris Wamin (Dwarf Buddha's Belly Bamboo), with its distinctively compressed and swollen internodes, has always teased growers who experience the occasional freeze each year. Their only option was to grow the more cold-hardy Bambusa ventricosa (Buddha's Belly), which only produces reliable bellied culms under stress.
This new introduction to the USA, collected by us in Hua'an, China in November/2012, will be frost-tolerant AND will produce reliable bellied culms.
UPDATE: After spending nearly two years in quarantine under USDA care, it was released to us in July/2014. It has been exclusively test grown at Tropical Bamboo Nursery since then.
Limited availability began early September 2017.
The common name Cool Buddha was given primarily to identify this species as appropriate for cooler climate zones.
Will grow to around 18' tall with 2.5" diameter culms in Florida. Minimum temp. 15 degrees F. Min USDA zone: 8b. Click here to find zone

Bambusa ventricosa 'Clone X'

Vigorous, large clumper with dark green culms. Extremely thick-walled culms with a slight zigzag and whitish bloom.

Yellow culms with green vertical stripes. Occasional swollen nodes and pink coloration. One of the few tropical bamboos that's good in containers. Excellent for bonsai.

Bambusa ventricosa - Buddha's Belly

Becomes a dwarf with swollen internodes when stressed, especially in pots. In the ground it reverts to a giant with zigzag culms and branches. In Florida, this species is rarely stressed and rarely produces bellies. It is always used as a large privacy screen. In drier climates, like SoCal, it is more likely to live up to it's common name, Buddha's Belly. See B.vulgaris Wamin if you want a belly-producing bamboo and you're in Florida. 55' tall, 3" diameter culms, Min temp 15 degrees F. Min USDA zone: 8b. Click here to find zone.
