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.

Bambusa tuldoides - Punting Pole Bamboo

Similar to Bambusa tulda but not as large and more hardy. It produces a large number of thick-walled culms growing in a tight clump. Cut culms traditionally used to push boats in rivers and streams (the non-football definition of "punt" is: to propel a boat by thrusting a pole against the bottom of a river, stream, or lake). Will grow to 45' tall with 2.5" diameter culms in Florida. Minimum temp. 15 degrees F. Min USDA zone: 8b. Click to find your zone.

Bambusa tuldoides cv 'Swollen Internode' - Cool Buddha *New

For those who live in southern areas of the USA, but not far south enough to grow the frost-sensitive Bambusa vulgaris Wamin, this may be your solution!
Bambusa vulgaris Wamin (Dwarf Buddha's Belly Bamboo), with its distinctively compressed and swollen internodes, has always teased growers who experience the occasional freeze each year. Their only option was to grow the more cold-hardy Bambusa ventricosa (Buddha's Belly), which only produces reliable bellied culms under stress.
This new introduction to the USA, collected by us in Hua'an, China in November/2012, will be frost-tolerant AND will produce reliable bellied culms.
UPDATE: After spending nearly two years in quarantine under USDA care, it was released to us in July/2014. It has been exclusively test grown at Tropical Bamboo Nursery since then.
Limited availability begins early September 2017. We're receiving daily enquiries for this bamboo so we expect to sell all of our 2017 stock before the end of the year.
The 2017 price will be $100.00 each for 3 gallon and the 2018 summer price will be $75.00.
The common name Cool Buddha was given primarily to identify this species as appropriate for cooler climate zones.
Will grow to around 18' tall with 2.5" diameter culms in Florida. Minimum temp. 15 degrees F. Min USDA zone: 8b. Click to find your zone.

Bambusa ventricosa 'Clone X'

Vi;rous large clumper with dark green culms. Extremely thick-walled culms with a slight zigzag and whitish bloom.

Bambusa ventricosa - Buddha's Belly

Becomes a dwarf with swollen internodes when stressed, especially in pots. In the ground it reverts to a giant with zigzag culms and branches. In Florida, this species is rarely stressed and rarely produces bellies. It is always used as a large privacy screen. In drier climates, like SoCal, it is more likely to live up to it's common name, Buddha's Belly. See B.vulgaris Wamin if you want a belly-producing bamboo and you're in Florida. 55' tall, 3" diameter culms, Min temp 15 degrees F. Min USDA zone: 8b. Click to find your zone.

Bambusa vulgaris 'Vittata Inversa'

Occasionally, a culm will develop in a clump of B.vulgaris Vittata that has inverse color striping. Instead of green stripes on a yellow base, the culms are predominately green with thin yellow stripes. We've isolated a few of these and propagated them into a reliable new, inverse form of B.vulgaris Vittata. Same growth form and dimensions as the standard B.v.Vittata. 50' tall with up to 4" diameter culms. Minimum temp. 27 degrees F. Min USDA zone: 9b. Click to find your zone.

Bambusa vulgaris 'Wamin' - Dwarf Buddha Belly Bamboo

A dwarf bamboo that is perfect by a pond but will fit just about any landscape. Swollen internodes are unusual and are sure to attract your visitors' attention. This bamboo could have been conjured up by Tim Burton or Dr. Seuss. In Florida (and other warm, humid areas) this species is much more reliable and consistent in producing swollen internodes (bellies) than the first species given the name Buddha Belly Bamboo, Bambusa ventricosa (tuldoides).
*If this bamboo is too cold sensitive for your location, we have an exciting new import that may become a good substitute for sub-tropical areas down to USDA zone 8b. Bambusa tuldoides "Swollen Internode' will be available for sale by 2017.

Cephalostachyum pergracile - Tin-Wa Bamboo *New

A rare, new introduction. Culms are straight and erect. Stunningly beautiful and distinctly identifiable new shoots are powder-blue with copper-colored culm sheaths. In Thailand, used as a flavor-adding vessel for cooking sitcky rice. Also used by the Dai people of South China for cooking rice and for tea-brewing vessels. To learn more, follow this link: Tinwa Bamboo
Grows to 30' tall with 2" diameter culms. Min. temp. 29 degrees F. MIn USDA zone: 10. Click to find your zone.
Imported April/2011 into USDA quarantine and was expected to be available after the summer of 2013. After one full year of field testing, it has become obvious that it will be a spectacular but slow-developing bamboo in South Florida. We have no expectations of availability There are currently nine specimens growing in our fields but none of those are really thriving. They're alive and are sending up an occasional new shoot. None are in containers as every attempt to containerize has been unsuccessful. We will continue to experiment in an attempt to find what this species is lacking in our environment.
