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 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 taking out the shoots to eat. What a great treat!

Another great thing about Asian Lemon is that it has very strong, thick-walled bamboo culms. These poles 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.

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!

China Doll Bamboo

China Doll Bamboo

Bambusa guangxiensis

Height: 18'

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, 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 can be watered with the lawn sprinkler schedule 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 6-8 months slow release fertilizer in March and September.
  6.  Avoid fertilizers that contain herbicides, such as Weed and Feed type.
