If you are uncertain about which bamboo choices are the best options for you, we hope to provide you with a plethora of information about our non-invasive clumping bamboo varieties. This should help you make the most appropriate decision for your landscaping goals.
Clumping bamboo is an excellent ornamental option because it won’t spread more than a few inches per year. And the varieties we grow at Palmco are perfect for Florida’s tropical winters because they are cold hardy to 15-20°F.
So, even when exposed to short periods of frost, they should have little or no damage. If they stay cold too long, the culms may die back and they may lose their leaves, but the root mass will survive and send out new shoots in the spring.
Why choose clumping bamboo?
• Non-invasive clumping bamboos originate in semi-tropical and tropical regions around the world, but many of them can stand periods of cold, even short times of frost. They grow exceptionally well in zones 8 to 10.
• Clumping bamboos won’t spread everywhere. They don’t creep more than a few inches per year. Running bamboo, on the other hand, travel as far as 10 to 15 feet. This enables them to quickly get out of control.
• Each new rhizome of clumping bamboo produces only one culm. This is located very close to the mother culm and becomes canes immediately. Thus, they are easily maintained.
Here are some of our most favorite clumping bamboo varieties:
Asian Lemon (Bambusa eutuldoides ‘Viridivittata’)- Originating from Southern China, Asian Lemon reveals small, yellow striped leaves and is a great resource for screening. The eye-popping colors are stunning while its beautifully tight clump makes it easily maintained.
Asian Lemon can grow to heights of up to 25 feet tall, which adds to its value as a privacy screening ornamental. It is a great addition to any home or garden.
Timor Black (Bambusa lako)- With nicely spaced culms and no lower branching, the Timor Black produces medium sized leaves and culms that can reach 3” in diameter and can grow to a height of 40 feet. The unique coloration makes it an interesting bamboo for tropical landscaping.
The mature culms are green and chocolate brown striped. They are smooth and shiny. You won’t find a better black bamboo for your landscaping agenda.
Golden Goddess (Bambusa multiplex)- This is one of the smaller clumpers, only reaching 10 feet in height. It makes a great container plant for patios and works well in smaller lots. However, we advise that you plant them 4 to 8 feet apart and allow them to quickly fill the space, offering you the privacy screening they are designed for.
Golden Goddess is a delicate and graceful bamboo that will add an exotic and tropical feel to the home or garden. And, it is very cold hardy, able to withstand temperatures as low as 15 degrees Fahrenheit. Plus, it’s very drought tolerant once established.
