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.

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 any time soon, if ever. 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.

Culms scandent, pendulous at the tip. Grows amongst other trees and plants, using them for support. New shoots and young culms are black. Culm-internodes, smooth; distally glabrous. Branch complement, several. Dimensions are difficult to describe as it generally takes the form of whatever supports it. The culms will be smaller than 1/2" diameter and their length can be more than 30' long, each leaning and winding upwards through support branches and foliage. Cold-hardiness is unknown at this time, however it will likely suffer in sub-freezing temperatures.

Chimonocalamus delicatus - Five-colored Bamboo *New

This is one of our 2012 imports into USDA quarantine. It will be test-grown at our nursery in 2013. The species grows naturally under the broad-leaved forest at elevations of 4000' - 5000' in Jinping of Yunnan China. In recent years, it has been introduced into other areas of Yunnan (at lower elevations) and is growing well. We were advised by our Chinese colleagues to test it in Florida. Culms are purplish-brown or green when young, yellow, purple or red when mature, called the five-colored fragrant bamboo. Branches emerging high. Beautiful clumps are used for gardens, parks and bonsai. It is described as growing to about 24' tall with up to 1.5" diameter culms. If the species adapts, we project it will attain only about half those dimensions at maturity in Florida, at sea level. It is cold-hardy to 20 degrees F.
UPDATE March/2016: The test bamboos are growing nicely in the ground but struggle in containers. So far, there is only one color (green). We're hoping this changes as the bamboos mature in the sun.
Imported April/2012 into USDA quarantine, released to us in 2013. The first field specimen successfully completed its first full year and is thriving. We've planted five more (2014) for future propagation.
We are releasing 3 & 7 gallon plants for sale with the understanding that they may not grow as taxonomically described. In south Florida, the natural growing conditions seem to not be ideal to develop with the culm color transitions. The culms stay mostly green. Where originally collected in China, the bamboo was growing in clay soil in an arid climate at around 1200' altitude.

Chusquea liebmannii

Culms strongly arching, sometimes clambering. Small tufts of leaves wrap the nodes of the culms. This is the only Chusquea species that can survive in South Florida without artificially modifying the natural growing conditions. All Chusqueas are clumping mountain bamboos and our sea-level, hot, humid summer conditions are fatal to the rest of this Genus. C.liebmanii will grow to 20' tall with 1/2" diameter culms in Florida. Minimum temperature 31 degrees F. Min USDA zone: 10

Dendrocalamopsis variostriata

This is one of our newer imports that cleared USDA quarantine in April/2012. Species name is in question but the genus is accurate. It is not to be confused with Dendrocalamus/Bambusa variostriata, which grows much larger. Develops into a nice garden bamboo with unusual fernlike leaves. Makes a great privacy screen or small feature. It has a very tight clumping and erect growth habit, ;od for areas with limited space. Grows to 12' tall. Min temp 28 degrees F.

Dendrocalamus asper - Asper Bamboo

An impressive timber bamboo that grows rapidly under favorable conditions. Shoots are large and of the highest quality for food. New shoots are a furry silver brown and velvet to the touch. This is the superior, Indonesian clone of the species. Not a Thai seedling. Can attain 65' and 5" dia. culms in Florida. Min. temp. 25 °F. MIn USDA zone: 9a
The price of this species has increased due to the recent demand for prime shoot-producing bamboos. Our stock levels and available propagation material are very low
