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.

Schizostachyum brachycladum Yellow Form - Sacred Bali Bamboo

Bright Yellow with occasional vertical green stripes on culms. Large leaves with occasional vaieagation. Striking bamboo. Tight clumping, few low branches. Has been described as being extremely tropical and unable to survive temperatures even approaching freezing. After many years of observation in South Florida, we have found the species to be no more sensitive than many other of our tropical bamboos when exposed to short-term temps near freezing. It can be, however, unforgiving if planted in less than ideal growing conditions. Specimens can languish for years then, when moved to a better location in the same garden, quickly thrive. 35' with 2" culms in Florida. Min. temp 30°F. Min USDA zone: 10. Click to find your zone.
