About us

We carefully choose and carry the best and most suitable clumping bamboo varieties. 

Whether you are looking for privacy bamboo, ornamental specimens, focal points, food forest addition, plantation production, or commercial applications, such as gardens, parks, zoos, resorts, community border, or highway barrier, we are your trusted clumping bamboo source.

Benefits of Growing Bamboo

Bamboo offers the fastest natural way to gain privacy. Clumping (vs. Running) bamboo is non-invasive and safe to use in regular landscape without root barrier.
Bamboo is flexible yet strong, so it is considered hurricane-resistant.
Bamboo plants are beautiful and exotic to look at. Here in our nursery you will find bamboos with green, blue, golden, black or white color, many with beautiful stripes.
Some bamboo shoots are nutritious and delicious. Some bamboo leaves make great bamboo leaf tea.
By absorbing 5x the amount of CO2 and producing up to 35% more oxygen than standard trees in the same amount of space, bamboo is your Eco-friendly plant option.

It has very similar look to Graceful Bamboo except its green culms has the added beauty of cream pin stripes. The top arches slightly. It can be used to create a dense privacy screen or living fence.

Angel Mist Bamboo

Angel Mist Bamboo

Dendrocalamus minor amoenus

Height: 35'   

Diameter: 3"   

Hardiness: 25°F

Angel Mist is one of the most attractive clumping bamboo plants. It has lush foliage with very large tropical leaves. It can be used to create an amazing privacy screen or living fence.

The mature grove has few lower branches, thus making it an ideal specimen for a walking trail, courtyard or smaller gardens.

Young shoots have the powdery blue tint that mature into beautiful light green canes with dark green stripes.

The footprint of Angel mist is on average 4 to 6 feet in diameter, but it can be maintained by thinning, trimming, and pruning to fit your individual application.

Asian Lemon Bamboo

Asian Lemon Bamboo

Bambusa eutuldoides viridi-vittata

Height: 25'

Diameter: 1.5"

Hardiness: 21°F

Asian Lemon, aka China Gold, has stunning vibrant gold canes with green stripes. It grows in a tight clump with full branches and dense foliage. It can be used to create a privacy screen or living fence. If left alone, it will be impenetrable by humans or large animals after 2 to 3 years.

However, if you choose to trim off branches from the base to show off its beautiful canes, it can be a fantastic focal point in your garden.

Young shoots have a very pretty light pink coloring and are edible. You can maintain the desirable footprint by harvesting the shoots to eat. What a great treat!

Another great thing about Asian Lemon is that it has very strong, thick-walled bamboo canes. These canes can make great garden stakes and craft material.

Baby Blue Bamboo

Baby Blue Bamboo

Bambusa chungii barbellata

Height: 25'

Diameter: 1.5"

Hardiness: 21°F

Baby Blue, a smaller version of Blue Timber Bamboo, has long elegant internodes just like Blue Timber.

Native to Southern China, it is one of the most desirable ornamental bamboo species. It does well in tropical and subtropical climates, making it suitable to grow in Central Florida, South Florida, some parts of North Florida, and in USDA zone 9 and 10.

Young shoots are covered by a white powdery bloom, which gives them a striking blue color.

Baby Blue bamboo gives the appearance of sunniness naturally. No wonder it is one of the top favorites for many bamboo enthusiasts and local Central Florida gardens.



Black Lako Bamboo

Black Lako Bamboo

Bambusa Lako Black

Height: 40'

Diameter: 2.5"

Hardiness: 27°F

Black Lako, aka Timor Black, is a striking black beauty. The color contrast of light green foliage and black canes is a pleasing sight in any garden.

Native to islands of Timor, it loves the Florida heat and humidity. In colder parts of Florida and the U.S., it can be grown in containers and add tropical lushness for any large indoor spaces.

It is one of the most unique ornamental bamboo species, loved by many home owners and garden enthusiasts.

Young shoots come out of the ground green, then turn into shiny black after a few months. Young shoots are of good taste. During shooting season (usually May to October), just dig out the shoots that are outside of your desired boundary and cook for a special meal!


Blue Timber Bamboo

Blue Timber Bamboo

Bambusa Changii

Height: 40'

Diameter: 2.5"

Blue Timber Bamboo, aka Tropical Blue Bamboo, can create a stunning lush privacy screen or living fence, but it  is also an outstanding choice for a standalone specimen in any garden.

The color combination of blue green canes, brown sheath, and light green foliage is an endless visual feast.

Blue Timber bamboo is elegantly erect and tight. It has one of the longest internodes of any type of bamboo, so it is great for craft material.

Bonnie Bamboo is a great option for where smaller plants are desired. It can be trimmed to form a thick yet delicate screen or hedge. It's leafy all the way down to almost ground level.

China Doll Bamboo

China Doll Bamboo

Bambusa guangxiensis

Height: 18'

Diameter: 1.5"

It is a great choice for using as container plants that will add fresh green color in a patio or a bright indoor space any time of the year.

For area a little warmer, it's a great option for a full, but shorter, privacy fence. Planting them 3 feet apart, it will block that "ugly neighbor" completely in 2 years.

6 Important Things to Know About Planting Bamboo

  1. In Central Florida, most bamboo can be planted all year round, except a couple of slightly cold-sensitive varieties (avoid Dec-Feb).
  2. Bamboo thrives in full sun but can live just fine in partial sun. It will be happy to sway next to trees or into the trees.
  3. Newly planted bamboo needs to be watered daily for 4 to 6 weeks after planting. Then it should be watered twice a week or as needed. If the leaves are folding or curling up, water with more volume or frequency.
  4. Bamboo roots need to breathe and should be planted in soil that drains well.
  5. A good fertilizer for bamboo should have the N-P-K ratio around 18-5-10 with some minors. If you want an easy and effective fertilizer routine, apply 6 months slow release fertilizer twice a year.
  6.  Avoid fertilizers that contain herbicides, such as weed and feed type.
