The Perfect Bamboo for Small Areas
- Fast Growing
- Great for Small Spaces
- Cold and Heat Tolerant
- Interesting Color
The Sunset Glow Bamboo is rapidly gaining popularity in the landscaping world because of its incredibly fast growth and unique form. Maturing up to just 6-8 ft. tall, it's a preferred choice by our customers who want to add interest to their garden, patio or property line.
This bamboo variety is non-aggressive and non-invasive. It won't run all over your yard like "running" bamboos... it "clumps", meaning its much more easy to maintain.
Relatively New Variant for Small Spaces
The new "Sunset Glow" green bamboo is one of the most popular dwarf varieties... making it a smart choice for small areas. It's a creative way to add greenery to urban patios.
Cold and Heat Tolerant
This is perhaps the easiest-to-grow bamboo variety available. It's incredibly cold-hardy, growing in zones 5-9 and withstanding temperatures as cold as -10° F. It's even tolerant of harsh sunlight, heat and drought conditions. In fact, its leaves won't curl up and shrivel due to lack of water... unlike other needy bamboo varieties.
The Sunset Glow's deep green foliage really stands out against its orange-red stems, making it an amazing accent plant - and looks just as impressive as a stand-alone focal point
As this unique bamboo grows in popularity, we will quickly run low on quantity, so be sure to reserve yours now. We'll ship it right to you!
Customer Reviews & Photos

Great start fills in well
Bamboo is doing great has filled in the large container well and quickly. Looking forward to some color variation down the road.
I am not sure what to expect from this bamboo
i received these plants on time. I planted them and placed in my porch. They look green and healthy at the beginning but now they do not look healthy and some of leaves turned yellowish. I am not sure they are supposed be this way during winter or they are having problems.
Planting & Care
Sunset Glow Bamboo will adapt to your natural soil even if it's sandy or heavy in clay as long as it's well draining. Depending on your climate water your Sunset Glow Bamboo 2 - 5 times a week. Don't over saturate your soil. Your Bamboo will need more water in drier climates.
Early every Spring and Fall fertilize your Sunset Glow Bamboo with a slow release fertilizer that's high in nitrogen. Standard lawn fertilizers that are high in nitrogen work very well.
