Hello,
Thanks for your post. I'm also in the Sacramento area, and would love to hear of your experience with dendrocalamus giganteus. Is our area good for this tropical species? - Tom


I used to have a pretty good size D giganteus in the ground but a bad cold snap in 2013 top killed it. It lives on in a pot, a shadow of its former self.

If we have some mild winters like the last 3, it will likely survive but we do seem to get the once a decade or so cold snap that can drop into the mid 20’s and with enough hours below 30 degrees the tropical clumpers are going to get pretty f*cked up. Then they look terrible until the spring. But I’ve had luck with all my other dendrocalamus for the last 3 years and so far so good this winter. But I only chose ones that had reported some frost tolerance. The D giganteus just isn’t worth it for me at this point. It likely won’t grow very big anyway. It does have a enormous leaves though.
