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 latiflorus x Dendrocalamopsis daii x Bambusa textilis *New

Called "Triple Hybrid Bamboo", although there are actually two different triple hybrids. We've been working to successfully get the second version into USDA quarantine.
One of several hybrid bamboos that caught our interest in China.
A select group of different bamboo species were forced into flower and cross-pollinated by Professor Zhang Guangchu (Guangdong Forestry Research Institute).
The primary objective was to combine the best features of superior edible shoot producing bamboos. Many also exhibited ornamental qualities and, with some, we've begun the importation process.
This hybrid is a combination of three species - a complex process that results in striated culms. The culms also grow slightly zig-zag. Ornamentally, it is spectacular.
Imported from Yunnan, China in July/2012 and released to us by the USDA in the summer of 2013.
We are currently test-growing in our fields. It should be available in limited quantities by mid-2016.
Will grow to at least 45' tall with 3" - 4" diameter culms.

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 ;od quality construction timber. Min USDA zone: 9b. Click to find your zone.
