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.

Gigantochloa hasskarliana - Panjang

An Indonesian import which, like many of the Widjaja-identified bamboos, was originally taxonomically numbered (G-17). We've been told it's local (Indonesian) name is panjang. Dr. Widjaja has now identified it as G.hasskarliana. It is a new introduction that is performing beautifully in South Florida. The growth form is a tight clump with typical Gigantochloa pendulous culm tips. The culm sheaths are fairly persistant and add a nice intermittent contrast on the culms. The leaves are medium-sized for the genus. So far, it looks like a great garden ornamental and looks like it will mature at around 30' tall, maximum. Min USDA zone: 9b.

Gigantochloa kuring 'Rachel Carson' *New

Straight culms that arch outward in typical Gigantochloa form with large leaves. New culms are striated beautifully cream/pink, then the striations fade to white.

This species is developing into a relatively small bamboo and looks to mature at less than 25'. Min USDA zone: 9b. Click to find your zone.
