"Specializing in clumping, noninvasive varieties of bamboo for Florida landscapes."

 Wong Chuk aka Royal Bamboo


Bring a touch of the exotic to your landscape! More and more people every year are realizing what spectacular landscape plants bamboos can be. And more and more people are realizing that by choosing clumping variety bamboos, they don't have to worry about the plants spreading uncontrollably. Clumping bamboos stay where you plant them!

At Florida Bamboo, our mission is to provide high quality plants of these little-known varieties of bamboo to homeowners and landscapers in Florida. Many of the varieties we sell are quite rare and highly sought-after. And because bamboos are unique in many aspects of their growth, care, propagation, and landscape effect, we provide this website to try to give a comprehensive information resource to acquaint you with everything you need to know to incorporate these spectacular plants into your landscape.

Our nursery is located in Citra, which is between Gainesville and Ocala, Florida. The nursery is open by appointment only.
