PLEASE NOTE: This is a list of the rarer or less popular species of bamboo. Some of these species may only be available upon request (ie. we will propagate to order). We have them growing in our plantation, but not necessarily available as potted plants for immediate sale.
Since these species are not in regular production, they are more expensive. However, if significant quantities are required, then prices can be negotiated.
A nice garden bamboo with green culms and cream striations which age to mottled black. Though not as black as the Lako, it does have a similar appearance, only smaller.
Said to be the most common bamboo in the world. Very adaptive. Good rainforest pioneer. Slightly weeping tops. Very hardy with a reasonably open clumping growth habit.
A beautiful ornamental with very small leaves which grow in clusters close to the culm. Quite rare and a must for collectors. Prefers cooler climates.
Edible shoots and good quality timber. Its not a very ornamental bamboo, but the near solid culms still make it an important timber bamboo.
A tight clumping bamboo which has green culms with white stripes and long arching tops reaching towards the ground. If left alone, the drooping tops will form a tunnel circling the clump.
Straight, good quality timber. Edible shoots. This bamboo flowered gregariously in 2010 / 2011. The plants that we are selling now are grown from seeds collected.
Same as the atter, but with yellow striations on the culms. Good timber and edible shoots. This bamboo flowered in 2007, producing some viable seeds. The plants now sold are from these seeds.
