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.

Dendrocalamus sikkimensis *New

A rare timber bamboo species in the United States. The limited stock is currently flowering and a few have produced large, viable seeds after hand-pollinating. These seeds were directly collected from the positively identified species, not from eBay or other unreliable seed source. They were germinated and the seedlings are vigorous. We won't know for a couple of years if these seedlings will develop the typical features of the species (especially the large culms that age to a burnt reddish color). Edible shoots and good quality construction timber. Min USDA zone: 9b. Click to find your zone.

Dendrocalamus sinicus - Dragon Bamboo *New

Described as the largest bamboo in the world (largest culm diameter). The species is most know for its almost grotesque, tortured-looking culms. The culms grow in a contorted, curving form that resemble an elephant's trunk. As the bamboo matures, each new shoot will emerge larger and develop into a twisting freak show that we all hope for.
Translated (Chinese) stories and info about the Dai People's "King of all Bamboos" can be found by following this link: Dragon Bamboo.
Min USDA zone: 9b. Click to find your zone.
Re-imported from Xishuangbanna, Nov/2012 into USDA quarantine. As of March/2014, the species has not yet been released to us from USDA quarantine (the 2013 US government shutdown is largely to blame for the release delay). Availability is, of course, now projected to be delayed as well, likely in 2015.

Dendrocalamus sinicus aequotus *New

This species differs from the original form in that its lower internodes are straight, not slanted, zig-zag, or curved. There are no tortured-looking culms. The overall mature dimensions are the same as the original form and, because the culms are entirely straight, this form is high in demand in Yunnan (China) for construction material.

Dendrocalamus sp. 'Parker Giant'

Jim Parker's giant bamboo in Hawaii. Huge and legendary. Species identity is in question. Very rare in the continental U.S.A., now being propagated at our nursery. Claims of 10” diameter, 120' tall culms in Kohala, Hawaii are exaggerated. This is, however, an extremely large-growing timber bamboo and massive 7" diameter 80' culms would not be unusual.

Dendrocalamus strictus - Calcutta Bamboo or Male Bamboo

The lower parts of the culms are sometimes solid. Drought tolerant. The most common and most useful bamboo in India. Many cultivars being distributed as this species (somewhere in the world) seems to always be in flower, and producing seed. The cultivar listed here was grown from seed collected in 1995 (India - Londoņo/Lucas). It has developed into a highly-ornamental cultivar with small slender leaves and a willowy overall appearance. A pleasant surprise from a species that originated with minimal expectations. Grows up to 40' tall with 2.5" diameter culms in Florida. Minimum temp. 30 degrees F. Min USDA zone: 9b.

***2012 import by Tropical Bamboo Nursery - currently in USDA quarantine. To be released for test-growth at our nursery by mid-2013.
