Central Florida encompasses the eastern coastal cities of Daytona Beach, Titusville, and Melbourne; the interior around Orlando, Kissimmee, Sanford and Lakeland; and stretches westward to the Gulf Coast cities of Clearwater, Largo, St. Petersburg and Tampa.
Summers in this region are hot and humid, while winters are generally dry and mild.
There is always a threat of a light winter freeze from November through March caused by occasional cold fronts from the north. Hard freezes (below 28 °F) happen rarely, so most of this area falls within USDA Zone 9b. However, the southern part of Tampa is listed in USDA Zone 10a, putting it at the northern limit of where coconut palms and royal palms can be grown, although some specimens do grow in northern Tampa.

Clumping Bamboo Suitable for USDA Zone 9b
At Palmco, we offer 16 spectacular varieties of clumping bamboos that are suitable for the Central Florida climate, such as:
Alphonse Karr Bamboo – This variety is cold-hardy to about 15° F. Alphonse Karr has low water requirements and is extremely cold-hardy once established. It’s a dense Chinese bamboo that grows to 20 to 25 feet with 1- inch diameter culms and is one of the best screen or hedge bamboos. The plant has striking yellow culms and random green stripes and provides a golden glow in the garden. New shoots and culms are often pink.
Tropical Blue Bamboo – Cold-hardy to about 20° F, this popular medium-tight clumper has light green leaves and nicely spaced thin-walled culms that develop a stunning powder-like, soft, light blue bloom. It requires a little more room than one of the tight clumping varieties. At a maximum height of about 35 feet with 3-inch diameter culms, Tropical Blue Bamboo is appropriate as an ornamental or as a dense privacy hedge.
