Some bamboo varieties are known to grow up to two inches per hour in optimal weather!
Bamboo can grow everywhere except Antarctica and survive in many different climate conditions. Some dwarf species of bamboo are small and decorative, while others are tall and thick, spreading quickly to create nearly impassable barriers.
Here are just two of our most popular varieties:
Angel Mist Bamboo (Dendrocalamus minor ‘Amoenus’)
Sometimes called Ghost Bamboo, this very rare mid-sized Chinese bamboo is one of the smallest Dendrocalamus species. It grows to a typical height of 35 feet with 3-inch diameter pale lime green culms with dark green stripes and a waxy powder covering. This tough species can handle a variety of soil conditions. Angel Mist bamboo makes a strong, colorful ornamental centerpiece and is ideal for use in an urban gardens or as a screen on larger properties.
Seabreeze Bamboo (Bambusa malingensis)
Originating in Southern China, Seabreeze is a bushy, very fast growing variety that can reach heights of up to 40 feet. The 2 1/2-inch diameter canes have a distinctive bluish-white tint in each section. This is a very hardy clumping bamboo that can withstand cooler temperatures down to 20°F. It is drought-tolerant, salt-tolerant and an excellent performer in planting zones of 9a and up. When mature, it forms a graceful umbrella-shaped arch and is ideal for hedges, windbreaks and privacy screens. The canes also make lovely “bamboo sounds” when the wind blows.
