Giant Japanese Timber Bamboo (Phyllostachys Bambusoids

Japanese Timber is a very large growing, thick walled, bamboo. It is used in Asia for construction and craft projects. It is not as cold hardy as Nigra Henon but is more cold hardy than Moso. It seems to grow just slightly bigger than Henon, reaching diameters of 5 inches and heights of 50+ feet tall.

Japanese Timber is cold hardy down to about +5 degrees although mine has survived colder if the cold snap was short and without a lot of dry winds. It is a beautiful sturdy bamboo that forms a tall privacy screen. Will produce huge canes in the right climate.

 Got some larger potted sizes ready to go. Also lots of field dug/larger sizes available for pickup/delivery

SASA PALMATTA

Sasa palmatta is a very small bamboo. Mine is maxed out at about 4ft tall, but it does get bigger further south. The striking thing about this species is the gigantic leaves (over a foot long) that give it a tropical look. It is great for planters. I use it on a creek bank for erosion control. Sasa likes full sun or part sun/shady location and spreads quickly. It is fairy cold hardy. Mine gets leaf burn when the temps drop below about 15 degrees but the grove has seen temps of negative 3 degrees without significant damage (climate zone 6+) #2, #3, and #5 sizes normally available click drop-down below for other size choices FREE SHIPPING ON ALL ORDERS Have just a few #3 size ready to ship, If you want large Palmatta now let me know.

Arrow Bamboo (Pseudosasa Japonica)

Arrow Bamboo is a fairly small variety that grows in the 10-18ft tall range. The canes are slender, strong and very straight (the ridges on each joint are smooth). As a result this bamboo was used by the samurai (and others) for arrow shafts. Japonica has fairly large leaves that cascade downward. It forms a very dense screen if planted in sun. Arrow Bamboo spreads quickly forming an evergreen wall. It isn't super cold hardy but can survive drops in temperature down to -5 degrees. It is rated for climate zone 6 and up. #2, #3, and #5 sizes normally available click drop-down below for other size choices FREE SHIPPING ON ALL ORDERS  Got some ready to go

Golden Bamboo (Phyllostachys Aurea)

The bamboo variety is sometimes referred to as fish pole bamboo. Its unique feature is the compressed nodes at the base of some of the plants (as shown in the picture). This type starts out green but when exposed to sunlight, it turns a yellowish gold color. It is not as cold hardy as Yellow groove or nuda. Mine takes leaf damage when the temps reach single digits. (Cold hardy to around 5 degrees). It does, however, form one of the densest screens you can find. The species normally has limbs much closer to the ground than most other bamboo types. One of the best screening bamboos available. Golden maxes about in climate zone 6B at around 25 ft tall with a diameter of about an inch and a half. Have a couple of #5 potted sizes ready to go

Dwarf Groundcover

(Sasaella masamuneana albostriata)

The sasaella variety is heavily variegated and is a very thick growing ground cover. It can get up to 4-5 feet tall if left untrimmed. I keep mine about 12 inches tall. Rated down to about negative 5 degrees (climate zone 6+) Cut it back to about 12inches in the fall and be amazed at the beautiful, fresh variegated growth in the spring.

Moso (Phyllostachys heterocycla f. pubescens)

Moso is the largest temperate cold hardy bamboo variety available. Under the right circumstances it can form an unbelievable grove with canes that are nearly 6 inches in diameter. There is a gigantic Moso grove in China where many movies have been made "Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, House of Flying Daggers" to name a couple. Moso is not the most cold hardy of the temperate bamboos in fact if you are not in climate zone 7 or higher, Moso will struggle to survive. Mine often gets completely top killed in the winter and a late frost normally gets the first round of shoots in the spring. It does come back from the roots every year, but I will never get a huge grove here in climate zone 6B. Moso won't survive temperatures in the 5 degree range. If you can grow it Moso is the most impressive sized bamboo available. FREE SHIPPING ON ALL ORDERS  Always in short supply, Have just a few left.

Spectabilis (Phyllostachys Aureosulcata)

Spectabilis is a cultivar, and is the inverse of, Yellow groove and possesses all the same qualities. The only difference is that the canes are a golden yellow with dark green stripes instead of green canes with yellow stripes. Spectabilis holds it color really well and is a beautiful species. It is my favorite aureosulcata. Spectabilis is one of the most versatile bamboo species, and is perfect for a tall privacy screen as it grows very dense. Under ideal conditions it can reach up to 2" in diameter and a height of 30'. It grows very fast and adapts well to lots of different conditions. Spec. is one of the most cold hardy varieties (down to about -10degrees climate zone 4+) Have quite a few #2 size ready to go

Snakeskin Bamboo (Phyllostachys Nigra Bory)

Can grow fairly large (30ft tall) under the right conditions. It is a very unique bamboo species. Canes start out green and over the course of a year become mottled black, brown, and green. This species is called leapord or snakeskin bamboo because of the spotted pattern. A very nice ornamental bamboo, and it has turned out to be a good screening bamboo more vigorous and more cold hardy than its cousin "Black Bamboo" Cold hardy to about neg 5.

Robert Young (Phyllostachys Viridis)

Robert Young can grow quite large with canes of 4 inches in diameter.It can reach heights of 40ft or more. I have it planted on a clay slope and have been amazed at how quickly it sized up. It is similar in appearance to Green strip vivax but has thicker walls and better wood quality. The canes of Robert Young start out green but over a few months time they turn yellow leaving behind only random green stripes. It has not been very cold hardy taking damage when temps are in the low teens. It does rebound well, however, from even negative temperatures. I would recommend it for climate zone 7 and up. Maybe zero degrees as the low temp. Got some #3 ready to ship
