What does ‘Hardy Temp’ mean for your bamboo plants?

Hardy Temp refers to the minimum temperature range at which a bamboo species can survive the winter. It is a critical factor for gardeners and landscapers to consider, as it determines whether a bamboo plant is suitable for their climate.

For our bamboo varieties, we have a hardy temperature range from -10°F to 5°F, meaning our bamboo can withstand cold down to these temperatures. This ensures that you can select bamboo that will thrive in your specific USDA Zone, taking the guesswork out of your landscaping projects.

Vehicle Loading & Towing Recommendations

To give you an idea of what you can carry, we typically load 25 Adult Screening Plants in a long bed pickup truck or 20 in a 6-1/2′ bed. You can get 80-85 plants on a double axle 16 foot trailer.

You will need a tailgate or ramps or need to build some elevation on the back of your trailer.

If you don’t have a tarp, we can cover the plants for you- we have successfully had plants make it to Colorado, Maryland, Michigan and Florida covered with carpet backing or “Leno.”

If you expect your order to be greater than 20 plants, please call ahead so we can be sure of availability of your particular species. We prefer to stabilize the newly dug plants for 2 weeks.
