Kanapaha Botanical Gardens

is the place in North Florida to see impressive stands of clumping bamboos, especially the larger types. Their plantings of Royal Bamboo are something you have to see to believe. Support your local botanical garden!

ECHO

Ecological Concerns for Hunger Organization, is a one-of-a-kind outfit located in North Fort Myers. Their primary mission is fighting world hunger by supplying research, agricultural techniques, and plant varieties to help poor people around the world feed themselves. There are fascinating demonstration gardens and a bookstore, and guided tours of the farm. For the bamboo enthusiast, they also have some plantings of tropical types of bamboo under development, and a plant nursery which has some very hard-to-find bamboo types.

The nursery frequently has Royal Bamboo and Giant Timber Bamboo for sale, so it is a good place to purchase those varieties if you are in Southwest Florida and can't easily make it to Gainesville. Note that their nursery has odd hours: 9am-noon, Mon-Sat. On the website, click on "Edible Landscape Nursery and Herbs"

The Florida Carribean Chapter of the American Bamboo Society

A terrific website that is loaded with information on tropical and subtropical clumping bamboos. One of the best resources on the site is a comprehensive list of all clumping bamboo species in cultivation in Florida, complete with descriptions and photos. You can join the society and participate in a number of meetings and work parties throughout the year, and receive publications the society publishes about bamboo.

The American Bamboo Society

is the nation-wide bamboo society. A lot of their focus is on the temperate-zone, running bamboos, but there is a tremendous amount of information on this website about bamboo in general.
