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 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. Shoots are edible but, until recently, it has been grown mostly as an ornamental in the USA. A shorter variety of B.oldhamii is available that is grown primarily for edible shoots (see listing below). Up to 55' tall and 4" dia. culms. Min. temp 24°F. Min USDA zone: 9a.

Bambusa oldhamii f. striata - Striped Oldham's Bamboo *New

In early 2012, we found this beautiful bamboo growing in Hua'an, China and attempted to import it via the USDA. That small propagule did not survive the stress of international travel.
I revisited this area of China in 2018 and, once again attempted to import this unique form of Bambusa oldhami. This time, we succeeded and the imported specimen has passed pathogen testing. It should be released to us from USDA quarantine by 2020 - a full seven years from initial discovery to arrival in Florida.
Our single imported specimen did start to flower in quarantine in March/2019. It seemed to have been stress-induced. We instructed the personnel at the USDA/APHIS facility to cut off all of the flowers and to fertilize. This seemed to be effective as new shoots emerged from the potting soil within a few weeks.
It should be released to us from USDA quarantine by 2020. Once released to us, the single specimen will be allowed to develop in our test field for about two years to prove its viability in south Florida. If all goes well, we will begin propagation and, realistically, propagules should be available by 2022.
This bamboo variety seems to grow a bit smaller that the standard form of B.oldhamii - it will take time to confirm mature dimensions once planted at our nursery.

(Likely) Up to 45' tall and 3" dia. culms. Min. temp 24°F. Min USDA zone: 9a. Click to find your zone.

Bambusa oldhamii Hirose

Not officially identified as a cultivar of B.oldhamii. It certainly resembles oldhamii. Some people feel it's superior as a landscape specimen and for construction material. Very rare in the mainland of the United States. A timber bamboo, which was said to be brought to Hawaii from India. When first planted in Hawaii it grew to 6” in diameter with thick walls. The original five plants all seeded and died, producing only one seed that germinated. From that seed, this current strain, now grows to 5” in diameter. Some of the culm sections are oval but most are round. Very straight culms and reach 60'- 70' tall with thin, strong walls and long internodes. Min USDA zone 9a. Click to find your zone.

Bambusa oldhamii- Shoot Production strain *New

Per Dieter Ohrnberger: Chiefly cultivated in central and northern Thailand. Recently (in 2009), it became known that a plantation with plants of the shoot production strain exists in southern California, U.S.A.; the plants came from Taiwan. This strain of B.oldhami is now in propagation at Tropical Bamboo Nursery. It grows to about 1/2 the overall mature height (30') of the ornamental strain of B.oldhami. Click here for more details

Bambusa pervariabilis x Dendrocalamopsis daii #3 *New

One of several hybrid bamboos that caught our interest in China.
Several bamboo species were forced into flower and cross-pollinated by Professor Zhang Guangchu (Guangdong Forestry Research Institute).
Some hybrids exhibited ornamental qualities and, with some, we've begun the importation process.
This combination produced several, numbered, offspring. We've imported the top two, #3 and #8. Hybrid #3 is larger than #8, has dark green culms, and brown fur on the culm sheaths. Hybrid #8 is somewhat smaller, lime green culms with little to no brown hairs on the culm sheaths.
Imported from China in July/2012 and released to us by the USDA in mid 2013.
Will grow to at least 35' tall with 2" - diameter culms.
