We grow bamboo species that are cold hardy to USDA zone 5 and south.

Our Japanese inspired 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 25 species and varieties of bamboo in the midwest.

After many years of cold hardy testing we are pleased to make our bamboo plants available to home gardeners, landscapers, zoological institutes, city parks, landscape architects, and more.

Home gardeners and landscape industry professionals alike choose us for our years of experience and for our larger plants at a lower cost.

• We specialize in larger field dug divisions.

• Live plants are available for pickup at our nursery location only.
We do not ship live plants.

• All orders are field dug by request. We will notify you when the order is ready for pickup at the nursery. Digging and producing bamboo is very weather dependent.

The pickup timeframe after ordering can range from immediate to a couple months or more out.

We dig large plants with minimal root disturbance. We do not propagate from small root cuttings.

We do not carry a potted inventory. Each order is dug to meet your needs as closely as possible.

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

We do our best to help you choose the right species and variety for your planting site and requirements.

Bamboo is a renewable and sustainable resource with almost limitless uses. We offer bamboo graphics that promote these attributes in our Japanese Gardens RedBubble store.



“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, 1865-1925
