Bambusa bambos - Giant Thorny Bamboo (Bambusa arundinacea)

Fast growing, thick-walled, soft. Lower branches are long, wiry and armed with thorns. Edible shoots. Used for paper in India. Very small leaves. There are many seedling varieties, or cultivars, of this species. The seeds of the cultivar listed here were germinated at Fairchild Tropical Garden, Miami.
The species name 'Bambusa bambos' (L.) Voss takes priority over the taxonomic synonym 'Bambusa arundinacea' (Retz.) Willd. and is the correct name to use, although Bambusa arundinacea remains the name representative of the type of the conserved genus Bambusa.
May grow up to 50' tall with 3" diameter culms in Florida. Min temp. 30 degrees F. Min USDA zone: 9b. Click to find your zone.
