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.

• All orders are field dug by request and are ready for pickup one to two months after being dug, weather and crop production permitting. We do not carry a potted inventory.

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

Please note that we do not carry an inventory. Every order is custom grown to meet your individual needs. Each plant is then stabilized for at least one month before being made available for pickup.

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

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
