Max Ht - This is the maximum height that this species will reach when mature and grown under ideal conditions.
Max Dia - This is the maximum diameter that the culms will reach when mature and grown under ideal conditions.
Min Temp - This is the minimum temperature the bamboo will endure or how hardy the bamboo is, usually some damage will occur at these temps. See the hardiness zone map.
Sun Exp - The average sun exposure for maximum growth. 1=Total Shade to 5=Total Sun Exposure.
R or C - If the bamboo rhizome is Monopodial (running) or Sympodial (clumping).
Hedge - This rating will give an indication of how well suited this bamboo is for a Screen or Hedge.

Some Common Terms:
Culm - The botanical name for the jointed and usually hollow stems of bamboos, sometimes referred to as a cane.
Rhizome - The root system of bamboos.
Monopodial or Running - A bamboo rhizome that extends away from the plant in a line. This type of rhizome produces shoots along it's axis.
Sympodial or Clumping - A bamboo rhizome that turns upward at the meristem, or growing tip, to form a new shoot. This type of rhizome forms a shrub like behavior.
Amphipodial - A rhizome that has both monopodial and sympodial characteristics.

We currently have 353 varieties of bamboo under cultivation, of which 303 are included below.

Ampelocalamus

A genus of subtropical semi-scandent clumping bamboos that consists of 11 known species. Usually found in wetter subtropical forests below 1500m (5000') in native China, India, Burma, Nepal and Vietnam. They range from tender to light frost hardy. The upper portion of the culms are pendulous with nodding tops sometimes reaching up to 40' in height. Culms are often rough and striated with prominent corky rings that provide a grip to help catch tree branches for support as they scamble up tree branches and undergrowth. The branches often have strong bent joints which also assist with climbing, making them attractive pendulous bamboos.

They have numerous branches at each internode with persistent culm sheaths and it shoots in the spring. The species 'tecta' has air channels in it's rhizome, which gives it the ability to grow in soggy, wet ground. Species are very similar to Pleioblastus and Psuedosasa.

Bambusa

This group of bamboos are tropical and subtropical sympodial clumping bamboo. They include both giants and dwarfs. They have numerous branches at each internode and usually throw their shoots in summer or early fall. The smaller plants will do very well in pots and can be brought indoors during the winter. In summer they require very strong light exposure. Most of the cold tolerant varieties are suited for zones 8 and up. They will form outstanding tight hedges where they can be grown.
