About Johnson Bamboo
Welcome to Johnson Bamboo. We have grown bamboo at this location since 1991. Sales began a few years later
We originally purchased bamboo simply because we liked how it looked. Soon the benefits of a tall evergreen wall/barrier became apparent. Now most of our 2.5 acre nursery is walled in by 25' high clumping evergreen bamboo (Bambusa multiplex hedge). Animals, burglars, high winds, and peering eyes can not get through it. Many other clumping and running bamboo were planted all of which have their virtues and limitations. Some are huge, some spread aggressively and need to be contained, most like close to full sun while others like some shade, all can be grown in containers for the patio or pool, and all are beautiful in their own way. Our bird population has increased with bamboo being the preferred roosting location especially during storms and cold weather. Uses for bamboo are limited only by your imagination and skill.
While selling bamboo at local public gardens a common comment heard from people is "I can't have a bamboo. It will spread all over my property." Some will and some won't. Aggressive running bamboo are very desirable in some circumstances while in most cases a non-spreading clumping bamboo is a better choice to solve a problem or satisfy a need.
The most common problem people want to solve is restricting a view into their property. Often a six foot high fence is not enough. Bamboo grow from a few feet to over sixty feet high when mature.
