Why Bamboo

Approximately 1500 different species of bamboo exist in the world that are native to every continent except Europe. As the fastest growing plant on earth, it can grow more than 45 inches in just one day.

Bamboo plants are growing in popularity for good reason. Fast growing and easy to care for, bamboo plants are pretty, practical and thrive in warm climates. Whether you’re looking to add a tropical touch to existing landscaping or use bamboo plants to create a privacy between neighboring properties, New Shoots Bamboo Nursery can meet all of your needs.

Bamboo is considered a grass, not a tree.  It is a woody, perennial, evergreen plant.  Although it can grow to towering heights, approximately 1500 different species of bamboo exist on the planet that are native to every continent except Europe.

As the fastest growing plant on earth, bamboo can grow more than 45 inches in just one day!  Different species grow to different heights, starting from one foot tall and other dwarf varieties, to giant timber bamboos which are capable of growing to over 100 feet tall.

Environmentally, bamboo is an excellent choice for anyone looking to reduce their carbon footprint.  As a rapidly replenished resource, more and more bamboo products are being introduced in the U.S.A. as flooring, utensils, linens and more.
