We specifically grow bamboo species that are cold hardy to USDA zone 5 and south. Our bamboo garden, Megumi no Sono, is located in northern Indiana approximately 60 miles south of the Michigan state line. We grow and test the cold hardiness of several species.

The species that do well after several years of testing are then offered for sale to other home gardeners, landscapers, zoological institutes, city parks and others.

Please note that we will be closed from May 22nd - 27th. Thank you.


Presale consultation on species choice per your application, planting site and more is offered.

Please note that at this time we do not carry an inventory. Your order is dug upon request. Each plant is then stabilized for at least one month before being shipped to you.

Bamboo is a renewable and sustainable resource with almost limitless uses.

“A man can sit in a bamboo house under a bamboo roof, on a bamboo chair at a bamboo table, with a bamboo hat on his head and bamboo sandals on his feet. He can at the same time hold in one hand a bamboo bowl, in the other hand bamboo chopsticks and eat bamboo sprouts. When through with his meal, which has been cooked over a bamboo fire, the table may be washed with a bamboo cloth, and he can fan himself with a bamboo fan, take a siesta on a bamboo bed, lying on a bamboo mat with his head resting on a bamboo pillow. His child might be lying in a bamboo cradle, playing with a bamboo toy. On rising he would smoke a bamboo pipe and taking a bamboo pen, write on bamboo paper, or carry his articles in bamboo baskets suspended from a bamboo pole, with a bamboo umbrella over his head. He might then take a walk over a bamboo suspension bridge, drink water from a bamboo ladle, and scrape himself with a bamboo scraper.”
- Dr. William Edgar Geil, 1800
