Palmco continuously researches and acquires new clumping bamboo species to evaluate them for their suitability to our Florida subtropical climate.

Ocala, located in USDA Zone 9a, has low temperatures ranging from 20 to 30°F. Many varieties of clumping bamboo are well-suited to this Central Florida climate, including:
Emerald Bamboo (Bambusa mutabilis) – Sometimes called Emerald Timber Bamboo, this variety is the one that most people picture when they think of bamboo. It is elegant, tall and straight, and is branchless on the lower half. Light green 2-inch diameter culms have a somewhat persistent white bloom on long internodes. Emerald Bamboo grows in a nice tight clump that is attractive and creates a dense privacy screen. It is cold-hardy down to 18°F, grows to a stately 30 to 40 feet, and makes an excellent ornamental bamboo.
Golden Goddess Bamboo (Bambusa multiplex ‘Golden Goddess’) – When you need a beautiful container plant for the patio or poolside, or are working with a small lot, Golden Goddess may be the perfect solution. It grows to about 12 feet tall with delicate leaves and densely packed ¼” diameter canes that turn golden with age and sun exposure. This is a semi-dwarf bamboo; plant 4 to 8 feet apart for a moderate-sized privacy screen that will fill in quickly. It is very hardy down to 15°F to 18°F.
Seabreeze Bamboo (Bambusa malingensis) – This tough, bushy and very fast growing Chinese variety can reach heights up to 40 feet. The 2 1/2-inch diameter canes have a distinctive bluish-white tint in each section. Seabreeze is a very hardy clumping bamboo that can withstand temperatures down to 20°F. It is also drought-tolerant and salt-tolerant. When mature, it forms a graceful umbrella-shaped arch and is perfect for hedges and privacy screens. The canes also make peaceful “bamboo sounds” in the wind.
