HAWAIIAN GOLD TIMBER BAMBOO    Bambusa vulgaris vittata
Can grow to 50 feet with 4" diameter canes. Cold Sensitive.
CLICK photo for more pictures

A real beauty. Gorgeous bright yellow canes with distinctive green stripes will be a centerpiece in your landscape. Canes can reach four-inch diameter and height of 35'-50' in about three years. Sensitive to cold but worth growing because of its extreme beauty. Canes may suffer frost damage at 27o to 30o but the roots will not be hurt and will send up new thicker and taller canes the next summer.

GIANT TIMBER BAMBOO    Bambusa oldhamii
Can grow 50-60 feet with 4"-5" diameter canes. Moderately Hardy.
CLICK photo for more pictures

A stately beauty. This tall, elegant giant bamboo has dark green canes that, at maturity, are almost too thick to put your hands around. A very popular upright grower, Giant Timber is a clumping variety with a fairly open growth pattern that enables you to truly enjoy its beautiful form. It works well as a centerpiece or to form a stunning hedge. It is especially appropriate for narrow spaces. In just a few years Giant Timber will form a gorgeous stand of towering bamboo. When swaying in the wind, the large, thick canes make serene "clacking" and "creaking" sounds.

SEABREEZE MIDSIZE TIMBER BAMBOO    Bambusa malingensis
Can grow 35-55 feet with 2" diameter canes. Very Hardy.
CLICK photo for more pictures

A favorite here at Beautiful Bamboo. The canes have a distinctive blue-white blush at each culm section. Because Seabreeze produces more large new shoots each year than most other bamboos it is an excellent choice for hedgerows or to hide objectional structures. Seabreeze forms a graceful umbrella-shaped arch when mature and has an open growing pattern with few lower branches so you can admire the beautiful canes. Like Giant Timber and other large-caned bamboos, Seabreeze's mid-sized canes also make wonderful "bamboo noises" when the wind is blowing.

GREEN HEDGE BAMBOO    Bambusa multiplex Silverstripe
Can grow 15-45 feet with 1" diameter canes. Very Hardy.
CLICK photo for more pictures

If you need a hedge that is dense, green and cold-hardy, consider planting this popular and reliable bamboo also known as Silverstripe. The dark green canes are bushy with white stripes on the young leaves. Watch the upper canes bend and bow to the wind. Plant 10' apart for a hedge that will block a view in just a couple of years and be impenetrable in 4-5 years.

GOLDEN HEDGE BAMBOO    Bambusa multiplex alphonse karr
Can grow 15-30 feet with 1" diameter canes. Very Hardy.
CLICK photo for more pictures

Like Green Hedge Bamboo, Golden Hedge also makes a spectacular barrier or centerpiece planting. The canes are yellow with vertical green stripes. Since it is slightly shorter than the green-caned hedge bamboo above, it may be preferable for a smaller yard or for planting under electric wires. With its striking coloring Golden Hedge is a very popular addition to the landscape. Golden Hedge and Green Hedge look very attractive when mixed together to form a living fence.

BUDDHA BELLY TIMBER BAMBOO    Bambusa ventricosa
Can grow to 55 feet with 2" diameter canes. Very Hardy.
CLICK photo for more pictures

As the name implies, Buddha Belly is an exotic, large-caned bamboo. Canes grow very tightly together with many lower branches. If you are looking to form an impenetrable barrier or block the view of something tall, plant Buddha Belly. The criss-crossing canes will occasionally form swollen internodes or "waists" if the plant is under stress. Under normal conditions it just grows huge and extremely dense.

DWARF BUDDHA BELLY BAMBOO    Bambusa vulgaris Wamin
Can grow 12-15 feet with 3" diameter canes. Cold Sensitive.
CLICK photo for more pictures

With its compact size and unusually shaped canes, Wamin is an exotic and exciting addition to any landscape. Known for the pronounced "bulge" above and below each cane's internode or "waist," Wamin develops its distinctive form more reliably than the Buddha Belly Timber Bamboo described above. Canes may suffer frost damage at 27o to 30o but the roots will not be hurt. As the weather warms new thicker and taller shoots will appear.

GOLDEN GODDESS BAMBOO    Bambusa multiplex golden goddess

This delicate-leafed hedge bamboo is a great choice for a smaller lot, or for those seeking a container plant for patios or poolside planting. Plant 4 to 8 feet apart and this semi-dwarf bamboo will quickly fill in to become a beautiful but not too tall privacy hedge.

LADYFINGER BAMBOO    Bambusa sp. Richard Waldron
Can grow 6-15 feet with 1/2" diameter canes. Moderately Hardy.

If you're looking for a pretty, green-caned bamboo with a small size and delicate features, consider Ladyfinger. Similar to Golden Goddess but with a more upright stature and finger-sized canes, Ladyfinger provides the perfect combination of beauty and function. Perfectly proportioned for small yards, this rapid grower with multiple new shoots appearing each summer also works well as a living fence.

GRACEFUL BAMBOO    Bambusa textilis gracilis
Can grow 20-25 feet with 1" diameter canes. Very Hardy.
CLICK photo for more pictures

A very handsome plant with few branches on the lower part of mature culms so the beautiful canes are visible without pruning. Graceful Bamboo has a soft, gentle look that is never overpowering. It is an excellent choice for narrow spaces or smaller yards because of its upright growth pattern. Proven to be one of our most popular bamboos, Graceful works well in city as well as country settings.

A big brother to Graceful, Emerald is also called Royal Bamboo or Wong Chuk. An elegant and stately bamboo, its straight upright canes grow tall and large with long internodes and few lower branches. Emerald's canes are uniquely colored a muted greenish-tan. Many bamboo experts believe Emerald is the same variety as the large textilis specimen at Kanapaha Gardens in Gainesville Florida. Many people who look at Emerald in our demonstration area say, "This is what bamboo is supposed to look like."

TROPICAL BLACK TIMBER BAMBOO    Bambusa Lako
Can grow 30-45 feet with 2"-3" diameter canes. Cold Sensitive.
CLICK photo for more pictures

With large ebony canes peeking out beneath lush green foliage, Tropical Black Timber Bamboo is a real attention-getter. This elegant bamboo grows in a tight cluster of upright canes that fan out as they reach upward. Although it is cold-sensitive, Tropical Black is a welcome addition to any landscape. Canes may suffer frost damage at 27o to 30o but the cold does not affect the roots. In the summer bigger canes will appear, quickly surpassing last season's growth.

ANGEL MIST TIMBER BAMBOO    Dendrocalamus minor amoenus
Can grow to 35 feet with 3" diameter canes. Moderately Hardy.

Aptly named, Angel Mist has a powdery, mystical appearance. A prolific grower, Angel Mist's extremely large leaves contrast beautifully with the bamboo's pale green canes. The canes are coated with a dusting of white creating a ethereal, other-worldly look. Look closely and you'll see thin stripes irregularly gracing the canes. Angel Mist works well as a specimen plant or in a poolside or meditation garden setting.

ASIAN LEMON TIMBER BAMBOO Bambusa eutuldoides viridi-vittata
Can grow to 25 feet with 1" diameter canes. Moderately Hardy.
CLICK photo for more pictures

If you are seeking a stunning specimen plant that has an upright form and eye-catching coloration, Asian Lemon would be an excellent pick. The bright yellow canes are accented by bold green stripes. It's relatively short height enables it to be planted under electric lines yet still be tall enough to block a two-story house. The contrast of Asian Lemon's dark green leaves with the plant's colorful canes makes this a valuable and highly desirable addition to the landscape.

Can't decide between a green-caned bamboo and one with yellow stripes? Get the best of both worlds with Yin Yang, an upright bamboo with alternating sections of solid green and gold-striped canes. Not only are the canes on this medium-height bamboo uniquely colored, the new shoots are also beautiful with dark purple tips. Large forest green leaves add to the verdant look. Whether used ornamentally or to form a dense hedge, Yin Yang complements any landscape.

BLUE TIMBER BAMBOO    Bambusa Chungii
Can grow 30-35 feet with 2" diameter canes. Very Hardy.
CLICK photo for more pictures

Although we call this "Blue" Timber Bamboo, some know it as White Bamboo. The name comes from the canes which are covered with a whitish-blue powder as they develop. With an upright growth pattern and thin-walled canes, this stunning bamboo contrasts beautifully with the dark green canes of Seabreeze, Oldhamii or the attention-getting bright yellow canes of Sunburst, Asian Lemon or Hawaiian Gold. Use it as a centerpiece plant or create an attractive hedge that will mature quickly into an eye-catching focal point. Also available is a shorter clone perfect for smaller gardens called BABY BLUE (Bambusa chungii barbellata) which grows 20 to 25 feet tall with slightly narrower canes and the same striking colors.

Very similar to Asian Lemon, but taller and with larger diameter canes, Sunburst is a mid-sized yellow bamboo with vertical green stripes. Its stunning coloration makes it a much admired showcase plant sure to attract attention in your landscape. It is a good substitute for cold-sensitive Hawaiian Gold, another stunning golden bamboo. It's rarity and difficulty to propagate make it a more expensive but highly valued cultivar.

An impressive large bamboo with dark green coloring and towering canes. During its summer growing season take a yardstick and chart how many inches bigger canes are each day. Incredible!
Can easily get to full height and diameter in 3 years. Canes will suffer frost damage at 27o-30o but the roots will not be hurt and will send up new thicker and taller canes the next summer.
