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.

Thyrsostachys siamensis - Monastery Bamboo (d-Thai) *New

A new cultivar from Thai seed stock (2009). This one will take a few years before we know which seedlings will be most vigorous and also what overall form/appearance they will reveal.

Thyrsostachys siamensis - Sweetshoot Monastery Bamboo *New

A rare discovery in NE Thailand. This cultivar looks identical to the standard T.siamensis that grows throughout SE Asia. What distinguishes it from all others is that the shoots are edible, and delicious, RAW. This is significant as most bamboo shoots must be boiled to remove bitterness - especially shoots of T.siamensis which are notoriously bitter. I was brought to the bamboo and a new shoot was kicked over and handed to me to try. Sure enough, no bitterness!
It was sent to USDA quarantine in September 2015 where it spent three years, finally being released in September 2018. This bamboo spent more time in quarantine that any other we've introduced. It was repeatedly tested for viruses and phytoplasmas until ultimately being determined to be clear of any pathogen.

We have planted this bamboo (2018) in our test field to let it develop.
It will take several years until we're certain this bamboo will perform as we observed in Thailand. Min USDA zone: 9b. Click to find your zone.

Thyrsostachys siamensis striata - Striped Monastery Bamboo *New

Another rare discovery in NE Thailand. This cultivar looks identical in form to the standard T.siamensis that grows throughout SE Asia, however, the culms are yellow/gold with green vertical stripes.
Finding a clone of this species with striated culms is the product of the relentlessness of Thoop Nakasen, in Thailand.
It was sent to USDA quarantine and released in September 2018.

x Thyrsocalamus (fomerly 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.

x Thyrsocalamus liang (Bambusa nana) Thai Beauty Bamboo *New

Very tight clump with erect culms that are naturally branchless on the lower 1/4. Somewhat thin leaves present a feathery, delicate touch to a majestic overall form. This species makes a beautiful statement in any garden.
Note: The species name, Bambusa nana, was mistakenly attributed to this bamboo several decades ago in the USA. It will eventually end up with its real species name, Thyrsocalamus liang (a hybrid species) per taxonomist and author, Dieter Orhnberger. Ref: CLICK HERE FOR DETAILS

x Thyrsocalamus liang striata (Bambusa nana var. striata) - Candy Bamboo *New

Typical tight clump form for the species with erect culms that are naturally branchless on the lower 1/4. Somewhat thin leaves present a feathery, delicate touch to a majestic overall form. This variety of the species has the added feature of striated culms, with the stripes transitioning in color tones as the new shoots develop. The stripes range from green to yellow to pink, red, and orange shades.
This bamboo was imported from N.E.Thailand and the single, small specimen was released to us in 2018. It is currently growing well in our test field and is the only in-ground specimen we have.
UPDATE: We now have THREE, well rooted specimens in 3 gallon containers. Those three will be available this year (2020). We will not sell more than one to one customer/collector. When all three are sold, there will be no more available until 2021.
