Bamboo Search Tool

Use our Bamboo Search Tool to narrow down a selection of species that might work well for your needs! Please note that there are often additional factors that may effect your choice.  In addition, this system uses heights attained at our nursery in Sebastopol, (which is strongly influenced by coastal weather patterns), and each species may get larger or stay smaller than listed here depending upon  and many environmental factors of your site, including the size of your planting area.

For a more detailed discussion please see Choosing your Bamboo.

Please note that this search filter is meant to only give you a starting point to the best recommendations, and we urge you to please call us to speak to one of our Bamboo Experts, Tues-Sat, 9am-4pm.

Of course, the best way to get highly personalized recommendations for your specific situation is to visit our nursery, or call to schedule an in-home consultation with Joe!
