#1) Bambusa multiplex 'Alphonse Karr': A full sun bamboo with a mostly vertical growth habit. Canes are gold colored with random vertical green stripes.

Important note: 90% of the Alphonse Karr plants available in the California nursery trade are infected with Bamboo Mealybugs. Bamboo Mealybugs are almost impossible to fully eradicate. The way to not have this problem is to start with plants that do not have mealybugs. All of our bamboo plants at Davis Bamboo Nursery are guaranteed free of bamboo mealybugs, ants, scale and bamboo mites. These pests are all extremely problemmatic and common in the California bamboo nursery trade.

#3) Bambusa oldhamii (Giant Timber Bamboo): A full sun bamboo with a vertical growth habit. 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 (translating to lower maintenance fees over the years), 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).
