San Diego Bamboo Nursery

DID YOU KNOW..
Bamboo is a grass and will not take over your yard. With over 1,000 species, bamboos include the tallest and fastest growing grasses in the world. There are two distinct types of Bamboo, "clumping" and "running".

In the CLUMPING bamboo the underground stems (rhizomes) grow in a tight clump and do not spread.

In the RUNNING bamboo the underground stems (rhizomes) can travel several feet underground before sending up new vertical shoots.

Due to the large variety of colors and sizes, bamboo plays an important role in a beautiful landscape design.
