If you are not familiar with some of the magnificent varieties of clumping bamboos that can transform your landscape into a tropical paradise, we have described a few of our favorites below.
Emerald (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 new culms have a whitish-blue waxy tint and turn a muted green color as they age.
It grows in a nice tight clump that is attractive and creates a dense privacy screen. Emerald Bamboo is cold-hardy down to 18°F and makes an excellent ornamental bamboo. Its culms are about 2-inches in diameter and it grows to a stately 30 to 40 feet.
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.
Kimmei Bamboo (Bambusa ventricosa ‘Kimmei’)
Also called Kimmei Buddha Belly, this delightful species has swollen culms that look like small Buddha bellies. The culms start out green but turn a beautiful golden-yellow with green stripes.
This variety has two forms and may behave differently based on where it is grown. The dwarf form usually grows to a maximum of 20 feet and makes a great container plant. Kimmei can also grow to a 50-foot giant with large, straight zig-zagging 3-inch diameter culms and are ideal for blocking a view.
Once established, it is both wet and drought tolerant. In addition to its beauty and versatility, bamboo is an 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. Landscaping with bamboo can help preserve natural resources.
