Clumping Bamboos Image #2 Pot #5 Pot #15 Pot #25 Pot
Bambusa multiplex 'Alphonse Karr': A full sun bamboo with a mostly vertical growth habit. Canes are gold colored with random vertical green stripes. It typically grows to 15-20 feet tall in Northern California with canes up to about 1 inch in diameter. Rated to 18 F by the American Bamboo Society.

Bambusa oldhamii (Giant Timber Bamboo): A full sun bamboo with a vertical growth habit. It can grow to 55 feet tall with canes 4 inches in diameter when mature. A typical height for this bamboo in the Sacramento area is 30 - 40 feet tall. In the SF Bay area it tends to grow to about 30 feet tall. Rated to 21 F by the American Bamboo Society. If you want a clumping bamboo with the largest diameter canes possible in Northern California this is the bamboo for you. If you are considering this bamboo please also consider Bambusa textilis. Both of these clumping timber bamboos occupy a similar niche in the residential landscape and they both grow to approximately the same height. For many reasons we here at Davis Bamboo Nursery believe that Bambusa textilis is a much nicer looking and more suitable bamboo for residental plantings. Our reasons for thinking that Bambusa textilis is generally superior to Bambusa oldhamii include that the textilis: 1) is easier to maintain, 2) shows an attractive powdery blue color on the new bamboo canes, 3) is a bit more cold tolerant, and 4) it has smaller leaves that do not get torn by winter winds (because of the wind in the Sacramento area oldhamii tends to look a bit raggy for about 3 months in the late winter and early spring ~ textilis looks great all year).

As above, we quote a range of prices for individual pot sizes because we price the bamboos based upon the amount of plant material in a given pot. For example, if a #5 pot has a small bamboo plant growing in it we charge less for that pot than for a #5 pot with a larger bamboo plant growing in it. Also note, #1, #5, #15, and #25 pots sizes are also referred to as 1, 5, 15, and 25 gallon nursery pots.
