Miramar Bamboo Wholesale
Are you designing a landscape for a new project or incorporating a tropical touch into an existing landscape?
Consider one of Palmco’s 16 varieties of clumping bamboo.
With more than 600 acres in production, we are one of the largest palm and bamboo plantations in North America.
Our Miramar bamboo wholesale plants can help you create privacy and beauty for your landscaping project in just a few growing seasons.
One of the best features of clumping bamboos, aside from sheer beauty, is that they are non-invasive. They grow outward from the center, and new culms grow taller and larger in diameter every year.
They don’t expand horizontally beyond their assigned space, making them an ideal low-maintenance alternative to the larger, more aggressive, running bamboos.
We offer the Dendrocalamus, a genus that includes some of the tallest, most spectacular bamboos in the world, as well as the tropical and subtropical Bambusa, which is cold-hardy and well-suited to Florida’s warm, southern climate.
These are a few of our most popular bamboos:
Alphonse Karr Bamboo (Bambusa multiplex ‘Alphonse Karr’)
One of the best screen or hedge bamboos, Alphonse Karr is a dense Chinese bamboo that grows to 20 to 25 feet with 1- inch diameter culms. The plant has striking yellow culms and random green stripes, and it gives a golden glow to any garden.
New shoots and culms are often pink. The variety has low water requirements and is extremely cold-hardy once established.
Dwarf Buddha Belly Bamboo (Bambusa vulgaris ‘Wamin’)
This dwarf bamboo that originated in Burma has very unusual bulges above and below each cane’s internodes that may make you think it was designed by Dr. Seuss.
There is no other bamboo like it in the world, and the plant is definitely an attention-getter. Fortunately, it produces the most consistent bellies in warm, humid climates such as Florida’s. This clumping bamboo grows to a height of 12 to 15 feet and has 4-inch diameter culms.
It is somewhat cold-sensitive and may suffer frost damage at 27o to 30o, but the roots will not be damaged.
Golden Hawaiian Bamboo (Bambusa vulgaris ‘Vittata’)
The extremely beautiful Golden Hawaiian features bright yellow culms with random green vertical stripes that resemble green enamel paint. For that reason, it is sometimes called Painted Bamboo.
It’s capable of growing to a height of 35 to 50 feet with 4-inch diameter culms within three years and its easy propagation makes it the most common ornamental bamboo planted in the tropics.
Golden Hawaiian Bamboo is cold-sensitive and is susceptible to frost damage at 27° to 30° F. This variety will become a focal point in any landscape.
Seabreeze Bamboo (Bambusa malingensis)
Seabreeze, from Southern China, is a tough, bushy and very fast growing variety that can reach heights 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 temperatures down to 20°F. It is drought-tolerant, salt-tolerant and an excellent performer in Florida’s planting zones of 9a and up.
When mature, it forms a graceful umbrella-shaped arch and is ideal for hedges, windbreaks and privacy screens. Its canes also make lovely “bamboo sounds” when the wind blows.
Palmco is located in the tiny fishing and farming community of Bokeelia on charming Pine Island, Florida, where we nurture every plant in our warm, fertile environment to produce only the strongest, healthiest palms and bamboos.
