Dendrocalamus brandisii  (Sweet Dragon Bamboo, Teddy Bear Bamboo)

One of the tallest bamboos in the world, with its thick culms and large, tropical leaves, it is a most impressive specimen in the South Florida garden.  The tender, sweet, edible shoots are an added attraction (only harvest the shoots when the plant needs thinning out).

Dendrocalamus minor Amoenus (Ghost Bamboo, Angel Mist Bamboo) 

This is one of our favorites.  A very rare bamboo from Southern China, it features yellow-green culms with darker green and yellow striations (stripes).  It grows very erect.  The mature clump does not produce lower branches, making it ideal for the smaller garden or along a walkway.

Gigantochloa atroviolacea (Tropical Black Bamboo, Java Black Bamboo)

This is one of the most sought after bamboos in South Florida - and with good reason.  This striking black bamboo is a tight clumping, erect plant.  The new canes come up green and then turn black.  The gracefully drooping dark green leaves add to its exotic, tropical appearance.

Guadua angustifolia Bicolor  (Striped Guadua)

Himalayacalamus falconeri Damarapa (Candy Cane Bamboo)

This bamboo is native to the Himalayan mountains.  The canes are green with cream and pink striping.  It can be difficult to grow in south Florida, as it does not like intense heat and sunlight.  Pictured to the left is a plant that we had growing in a container in Fort Lauderdale for four years, barely surviving.  At our new location in the Sarasota area, we planted it under some oak trees and it is beginning to thrive.  It will do best in zone 9A (map) in filtered sunlight, or in a cooler zone.

This Thyrsostachys siamensis bamboo plant has been in the ground for less than two years. Thyrsostachys siamensis (Monastery Bamboo)  

A graceful bamboo used extensively around monasteries in Thailand.  It is a tight clumper with gracefully drooping canes, which can bend so far they reach the ground.  The variety that we carry is the one with the extreme drooping form, as you can see in the photo.  This variety is very rare and will create a huge bamboo shrub.  The children love it, as the dome shaped shrub becomes like a private fortress inside the arching canes.
