Austin is located in USDA Hardiness Zone 8b. Although the city enjoys a humid subtropical climate with short, mild winters and very long hot summers, short periods of frost can also be a fact of life.
Average lows in Austin in winter are in the upper 30s, and it’s not unusual for residents to see freezing nights between mid-December and mid-February. Consequently, it’s important to look for clumping bamboos that can withstand the short cold spurts.
