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.

Gigantochloa sp. Malaysian Black *New

A smaller black bamboo for gardens. Green culms darken to black with age. Green stripes sometimes remain on the black culms, creating a striking appearance. The Malaysian Black is a good alternative to Gigantochloa atroviolacea, which is sometimes too large for smaller gardens. The form is similar to G.atroviolacea but MAY grow to only about 1/2 the mature size. We're still test-growing this new import to confirm its mature size.
Note: This is the same species that has been sold under the trade name "Black Diamond".
Should grow to 20' with 1" diameter culms in Florida. Minimum temp. 29 degrees F. Min USDA zone: 9a. Click to find your zone.
