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.

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 membranacea

A fine-leafed, graceful bamboo that is considered a large landscape ornamental. Culms somewhat arching or weeping at the tops. The new shoots are wrapped in silver-white coated sheaths. Very fast-growing in tropical or sub-tropical conditions.
Scientifically published as Dendrocalamus membranaceus, with Bambusa membranacea as a synonym. Commercially, it's become more common under Bambusa so we're listing it as such.

Bambusa membranacea var. Variegata *New

Another wild-collected seedling that was discovered in NE Thailand in 2015 by Thoop Nakasan of Nan, Thailand. The species (B.membranacea) was in a flowering cycle in Thailand around 2009-2012 and most of the resultant seedlings have developed true to form. Some rare mutations are being discovered and this is one of the more spectacular.
Imported in 2016. It's now growing in our test field and propagation has begun.
Unlike the 'Waterfall' cultivar, this cultivar grows in the typical, upright form of Bambusa membranacea (but still smaller overall). The leaves are tiny and variegated green with cream-colored stripes.
It should be an ideal focal point in small gardens or feature bamboo in the foreground of large gardens.
So far, it looks to max out at 16' tall with 1/2" diameter culms. We'll update these specs as it continues to develop in the growing conditions of south Florida. Min temp, 25 deg F. Min USDA zone: 9a. Click to find your zone.

Bambusa membranacea var. Waterfall *New

One of the wild-collected seedlings that was discovered in NE Thailand in 2015 by Thoop Nakasan of Nan, Thailand. The species (B.membranacea) was in a flowering cycle in Thailand around 2009-2012 and most of the resultant seedlings have developed true to form. Some rare mutations are being discovered and this is one of the more spectacular.
We imported it in 2015 and it took nearly three years to clear USDA quarantine. It's now growing in our test field and propagation has begun. The leaves are brilliantly variegated mostly white with thin green stripes. New shoots are purple/pink.
It grows in a bush form with cascading large leaves, never reaching even 1/4 the height of the standard B.membranacea. It should be an ideal focal point in small gardens or feature bamboo in the foreground of large gardens.
So far, it looks to max out at 10' tall with 1/2" diameter culms. We'll update these specs as it continues to develop in the growing conditions of south Florida. Min temp, 25 deg F. Min USDA zone: 9a. Click to find your zone.

Bambusa multiplex 'Rosa' *New

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