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 giganteus variegatus (variegated)

Mostly identical to D.giganteus but with occasional variegated leaves. The leaf variegation is random and appears on a small percentage of the leaves - then disappears with age. The most distict feature of this clone is that it often produces contorted, tortoise-shell culms. This mutation also means the size at maturity is much smaller than the standard form of D.giganteus.
Will grow to 30' tall with 3" dia. culms. Min USDA zone: 9b. Click to find your zone.

Obtained in a trade with a bamboo enthusiast in Taiwan. Three large offsets were sent to USDA quarantine and one survived.

To be test-grown and propagated, beginning in 2019.

Dendrocalamus latiflorus x D.daii x B.textilis - Triple Hybrid Bamboo *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.
Will grow to at least 45' tall with 3" - 4" diameter culms.
