FAQs About Clumping Bamboo
Is clumping bamboo cold-hardy?
The clumping bamboo we grow at Palmco is cold hardy from 15-20°F and perfect for Florida’s subtropical winters. They should suffer little or no damage when exposed to low temperatures for short periods of time, and will grow more cold-hardy as they mature. If they are too cold for long, they may lose their leaves and the culms may die back, but the root mass will survive, sending up healthy new shoots in the spring. Prolonged wind may cause more damage to culms and foliage than cold.
How can clumping bamboo be used in a landscape?
Clumping bamboos have a unique root structure that creates a tight cluster of culms, so they won’t run rampant in all directions like running bamboos and won’t spread more than a few inches a year. Not only do they make beautiful specimen plants, but they are the fastest-growing plants you can choose for windbreaks, privacy screens and noise and dust barriers.
Should clumping bamboo be pruned?
Clumping bamboo is simple to maintain but may need a little pruning to look its best. After the third growing season, remove older, less productive culms to make way for healthy new growth. Cut off any unwanted shoots as close as possible to ground level, but don’t prune out more than one third of the canes in a given year. If you want a manicured hedge, prune new shoots to the desired height in late summer and late fall.
