The Bamboo Society's Plant Sale will showcase some of the best tropical bamboo from around the world. Bamboo can be divided into two types-runners, which are invasive and grow in cooler climates and clumpers, which are non-invasive and grow best in sub-tropical climates such as South Florida.
Bamboo is known for its aesthetic beauty and captivating look. It can be used for privacy, shade, as a sound barrier and a wind break. Bamboo is also an ecologically sound choice for planting in deforested areas because of its fast growth rate and high carbon dioxide absorption rate.
