Greetings, any of the Bambusa multiplex, textilis forms, ventricosa forms and unless you are uphill some Oldhamii is good. It is my understanding that a few others are fine but the above I have had no problems with.

I live about an hour southwest from Sacramento and I'm successfully growing the following:

Ampelocalamus scandens - Likes shade
Bambusa chungii
Bambusa dolichoclada
Bambusa dolichomerithalla
Bambusa emeiensis
Bambusa pervariabilis 'Viridistriata'
Bambusa tuldoides
Otatea acuminata 'aztecorum'
Yushania boliana - gets leaf curl during the hot days, but has survived 105F+ in full sun.

I'm also attempting to grow various Dendrocalamus that may have some cold tolerance. My thread is in the experimenting with bamboo sub forum.

Thanks for the responses.
This is what I have so far-
Bambusa Oldhammi
Dendrocalamus Asper
Phyllostacys Pubenscens from seed - What are the chances the supplier got the name right?
