Although it can grow to towering heights, bamboo is actually a grass, not a tree.
There are more than 1,500 different species of bamboo in the world, and there are varieties native to every continent but Europe. As the fastest growing plant on earth, it’s possible for some bamboos to grow nearly four feet in a single day, without the need for fertilizers, pesticides or much water.
Different varieties grow to different heights, from dwarf plants that grow up to 5 feet in height and giant timber bamboos, which are capable of growing over 100 feet tall.
As a landscaping material, bamboo has a wide range of uses.

Many people avoid using bamboo in their landscapes because they fear that the plant will run rampant, spreading far beyond its intended space.
This is not the case with clumping bamboos, which are very predictable in terms of their size and shape.
The distinction between pachymorph (clumping) bamboos and leptomorph (running) bamboos is the way they behave underground.
Clumping bamboos generally spread very slowly and are non-invasive.
Each new rhizome produces only a single culm, located very close to its mother culm.
They turn upward, becoming canes immediately, and are easy to maintain. Clumping bamboos will usually stay in one place and don’t spread out horizontally more than a few inches per year. They grow only in Zones 8 to 10.
Running bamboos, on the other hand, send out shoots underground, traveling as far as 10 to 15 feet, producing new culms all along the way. Runners have the ability to spread very rapidly and can be difficult to control and can be grown in a broader range of climates.
At Palmco, we only grow the clumping varieties of bamboo.
The Bambusa variety is a tropical and subtropical species that is ideal for warm, southern climates yet cold-hardy to about +20° F, and the Dendrocalamus variety, is a genus that includes some of the tallest and most impressive bamboos in the world. Many of these clumping bamboo varieties have only become available in the U.S. during the past decade, providing a new, exciting element for landscapes.
Bamboo is also a great eco-friendly landscaping solution and helps to fight climate change.
A grove of bamboo absorbs carbon dioxide and releases 35% more oxygen into the air than a similar-sized grove of hardwood trees.
Also, depending on the species, bamboo can be harvested in one to five years for use as a building material, for tools and weaponry, as a food source, and many other uses. In comparison, an oak tree takes about 40 years to mature and is not quickly renewable.
