(Gramineae - grass family)
Bamboo. About 30 species of tall to very tall, evergreen, woody-stemmed grasses. Native to temperate east Asia and the Himalayas. This genus contains the largest, and many of the most useful, of the temperate zone bamboos. Phyllostachys species are mostly aggressive spreaders. The shoots are edible, but vary in quality depending on species. (The shoots of some species develop an acrid flavor when exposed to light. In the case of these species, the shoots can be harvested as soon as they emerge from the ground, soil or mulch can be mounded up around the shoots to prevent them from being exposed to light. Shoots can also be boiled in one or more changes of water to remove acrid flavor.) The culms (canes) of all species are useful for a wide variety of purposes; their size, strength, and durability vary considerably, however, among the different species. Phyllostachys species usually prefer full sun, and tend to be intolerant of heavy shade. They typically have graceful, willowy foliage. Culms of most species are upright within groves, and depending on the species and selection may remain upright or may arch outwards at the edge of groves. Species descriptions in many cases include notes on edibility of shoots, quality of wood, and growth habit of the culms. The maximum heights and culm diameters listed are typical for the species, but in some cases species can exceed these typical sizes. Where available, we have also included the maximum reported size. We now have available 3-5' and larger sizes for some species. The prices listed here are for plants with a single culm. In the 3-5' and larger sizes, multiple culm plants are usually available also; please inquire. Sizes over 3' tall are not always available during the period from January to May, but are usually available at other times. 7'-9' and larger sizes are not shippable by UPS. If you order a larger size plant and it is not available, we will substitute the next smaller size of that species available and refund the difference, unless you specify otherwise. Phyllostachys species in the up to 1-1/2' and 1-1/2 - 3' sizes are normally shipped in 6" pots. Larger sizes are normally shipped as burlapped plants. For some areas, pot size may be reduced for shipping. Quantity rates and wholesale rates are available for some species - please inquire.

A distinctive ornamental feature of Phyllostachys aurea is the presence near the base of some of the culms of one or more very short and irregularly swollen internodes.

yellowgroove bamboo


edible, container, hedge - screen, sun - part shade
China

One of the more cold-hardy bamboo species, it is widely grown in the U.S. Culms are strongly upright, with dense foliage. A good species for hedges or screens. Young culms are green with yellow grooves. Shoots are notably free of acrid flavor, even when raw; one of the best species for edible shoot production. Wood is not of high quality, as compared with other species, and is less durable than that of some species when used outdoors (but the culms are straight and sturdy and quite suitable for many uses). About 20% of the culms have a distinct (and sometimes very pronounced) crook near the base. This feature, which is descriptively referred to as genuflection (meaning "bending of the knee") adds to the ornamental appeal of the species. Has been reported to grow as large as 40' tall with 2-1/4" diameter culms in the U.S. An aggressive spreader. Note: Sizes over 3' tall are not always available during the period from January to May, but are usually available at other times. 7'-9' and larger sizes are not shippable by UPS.

A vigorous spreader, and quite cold hardy. Upright culms and very dense foliage make this a particularly good species for use as a hedge, screen, or windbreak. Quite tolerant of shade, for a Phyllostachys species. Wood is considered relatively strong; shoots are edible and of good quality. Reported to grow nearly twice as large as the listed size in the southeastern U.S., although it may be a different form of this species which does so.

Much like the species, above, except in size. Also, the culms sometimes develop a distinctive white, waxy coating. This selection has proven to be one of the most cold hardy bamboo species we have tested here. After being exposed to a temperature of -16° F, the leaves were killed, but the wood and many of the buds survived, so the culms leafed out, at least partially, in spring. Well suited for use as a hedge or screen.

The Chinese refer to this species as "beautiful bamboo". Strongly upright culms with dropping foliage. Culms turn orange-yellow when exposed to the sun. Capable of reaching full size quite quickly. Shoots are edible and rated good to excellent in quality. Wood is considered good in quality. Reported to grow as large as 35' tall with 1-1/2 diameter culms in the U.S. A rugged species, it is reported to be especially resistant to drought and extremes of temperature. Grows well on sandy soil. Reported to do well in the intermountain West. This species has now been through two winters in our outdoor test plantings, and has shown very good cold hardiness. In both winters, we experienced extreme lows of -8° F along with extended periods of bitterly cold, windy weather. In a location sheltered from the wind,Phyllostachys decora suffered only minor leaf injury. In a more exposed location there was more leaf injury, but essentially no injury to the wood (culms and branches).

A large, outstandingly ornamental species. The relatively thick, strongly tapered culms arch gracefully towards the light. Reaches its mature size in as little as 7 to 8 years, which is faster than most hardy bamboos. Best known for its delicious shoots, considered to be among the very best bamboo shoots for eating. According to plant explorer Frank N. Meyer, as quoted by Daphne Lewis in Hardy Bamboos for Shoots & Poles, sweetshoot bamboo is "the edible bamboo grown in nearly every back yard in central China". The lack of tough fibers in the culms renders the shoots especially tender for eating, but causes the culms to be of relatively little value as building material. Sends up many extra shoots which do not develop into culms; these shoots lend themselves easily to the palate.

This fast-growing and relatively cold-hardy species is named for the slight zig-zag growth habit shown by some of the culms (some are straight). Culms bear dense foliage, but the species forms a relatively open grove with the outer culms tending to lean toward the light. The shoots are considered to be of excellent quality for eating. The wood is considered to be of medium quality, and may be used for a variety of purposes including weaving into baskets and other articles.

Strikingly ornamental and very popular, with the abundant green foliage contrasting with the black culms. Culms are green at first, gradually turning black. Black coloration develops best when culms are exposed to the sun. Forms a small, open grove; not particularly invasive. Does not seem to attain its maximum size in areas with very mild winters. Culms tend to arch gracefully, and may lie down when weighted by rain or other forms of precipitation. Culm are thin walled; wood is hard and tough. The wood is used for a number of purposes, including furniture and musical instuments, and decorative uses such as panels and inlays. Shoots are described as being acrid when raw, delicious cooked. Somewhat shade tolerant, and may prefer a bit of shade when grown in hot climates (but should have plenty of light for best development). Tolerates clay soil. Appreciates a steady moisture supply. Shows leaf burn when grown in alkaline soil. Has been reported to grow as large as 60' tall and 3-1/4" in diameter in the U.S.

One of the best species for combining cold hardiness with large size, it is also relatively tolerant of cold, dry winds. Culms are strongly upright and nearly straight. Cultivated in China for its edible shoots, which have only a slight acrid flavor even when raw. A particularly prolific producer of shoots, this species begins shooting relatively late and can continue to produce shoots throughout the summer if the moisture supply is steady. Culms are thin-walled, strong, and nearly circular in cross section. Tests have shown this species to produce outstandingly high yields of poles and pulpwood. Nodal ridges ("joints") are narrow and only slightly elevated, the least prominent of any Phyllostachys species. Culms are well suited for splitting into strips for weaving.

Among the most vigorous and cold tolerant of the giant hardy bamboos, this species is relatively quick to reach mature size. The thin walled, slightly zig-zag culms are favored for weaving. The shoots are of excellent quality for eating. A particularly handsome species, its masses of large, drooping leaves give it a tropical appearance.
