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.

Dendrocalamopsis variostriata

This is one of our newer imports that cleared USDA quarantine in April/2012. Species name is in question but the genus is accurate. We believe it to be a variety of Bambusa multiplex.
It is not to be confused with Dendrocalamus/Bambusa variostriata, which grows much larger. Develops into a nice garden bamboo with unusual fernlike leaves. Makes a great privacy screen or small feature. It has a very tight clumping and erect growth habit; good for areas with limited space. Grows to 12' tall. Min temp 28 degrees F.

Dendrocalamus asper 'Betung Hitam' - Black Asper Bamboo

A rare black variety of D. asper. Large culms are dark brown at the base and darken to black after a few nodes. This is a giant, timber bamboo that needs plenty of space.

Dendrocalamus asper - Asper Bamboo

An impressive timber bamboo that grows rapidly under favorable conditions. Shoots are large and of the highest quality for food. New shoots are a furry silver brown and velvet to the touch.
This is the superior, Indonesian clone of a vigorous Dendrocalamus asper mother plant. Ours is not an unreliable seedling. It is important to consider this when choosing the young bamboo you're planning to grow, especially if you're planning commercial shoot or biomass production.
Can attain 65' and 5" dia. culms in Florida. Min. temp. 25 °F. MIn USDA zone: 9a
The price of this species has increased due to the recent demand for prime shoot-producing bamboos. Our stock levels and available propagation material are very low

Dendrocalamus barbatus var. internodiradicus - Cat's Ear Bamboo *New

Inter-nodi-radi-cus...
This one's all about the internodes (the culm space between the nodes). The cool name indicates there's something unusual going on there, and the name doesn't lie.
As this bamboo matures, the weirdness becomes more pronounced. The taxonomic description indicates that the most notable difference between this variety and the standard form of D.barbatus is the lack of hair on the culms or oral setae on the culm sheath auricles.The culm internodes are very slightly concave in the center then step up to create pronounced nodes banded in white. They also can be slightly ventricose (zig zag).
The new culm colors are spectacular!
Sourced from the South China Botanic Garden.
New import. Released to us from USDA quarantine in March/2015. .

Dendrocalamus birmanicus *New

This is a relatively small-growing species of Dendrocalamus from Yunnan, China and Myanmar. Leaves are very small and it may reach 30' tall - more likely 20' tall in South Florida.
We are trialing this species as a trimmed hedge and the results, so far, are excellent.

Dendrocalamus brandisii - Sweet Dragon Bamboo *New

The D.brandisii in the USA, for decades, has been a variety with the common name 'Teddy Bear Bamboo'. In recent years, a Black Brandisii became available. They're both spectacular, produce edible shoots, and have excellent timber. Neither, however, are true D.brandisii and are likely hybrids of D.brandisii and another species (likely D.asper or D.hamiltonii).
For many years, I've hoped to acquire a true D.brandisii. In 2014, I happened upon a stunning focal specimen in Guangzhou, China's South China Botanic Garden. Our lunch that day was bamboo shoots from the same specimen.
It took some work (begging and trading) with a garden worker who quietly dug off a small section for me. This was sent via DHL to the USDA in Beltsville, MD for quarantine. It survived and, in March/2015, it was released to us and is now growing in our test-fields.
Not available at this time. There is massive farming demand for this species and we are letting our field stock mature to prepare for mass-propagation.
Highest quality shoot producer - edible raw.
60' and 5" dia. culms in FL. Min. temp. 26 °F. Min USDA zone: 9b

Dendrocalamus copelandii - Phai man mu (Pig Fat Bamboo) *New

The Thai name Phai man mu (Pig Fat Bamboo) alludes to the copious amount of wax covering the inter­nodes of new shoots and young culms.
Eye-catching appearance in the forest or in a garden.
A large, elegant, tufted bamboo. Culms up to 76' tall, 7-8" in diameter at the base. Nodes barely prominent with long internodes.
Cultivated for edible shoots.
New import.
We continue to have high hopes for this beautiful bamboo. Our initial test specimen started strong but its rhizome was partially damaged by hurricane Irma in 2017, especially by standing water in a particularly slow-draining area of our test field. To save it, we relocated it to a different field in 2018. The bamboo species will be fine but it had a setback that will delay propagation until 2020.
