Cycads, Bananas and Bamboos

Cycads are also often called Sago palms. Bananas and Bamboos are not trees, but are big tropical grasses. They all have nothing to do with palms, but are as beautiful and exotic plants as palms.

Giant bamboo, Phyllostachys aureosulcata Spectabilis

Phyllostachys  'Spectabilis', Giant  bamboo

 

This giant bamboo is one of the most cold hardy of the large bamboos and is a very popular bamboo. It could reach up to 16 m.

 

The Golden bamboo is cold resistant down to at least -18°C, but its rhizome could survive after at least -25°C. However, in colder areas, where temperatures regularily drop below -18°C, this bamboo could hardly get taller than 8-10 meters, after many years. In areas outside of the temperature inversions in southern Bulgaria, the Golden  bamboo could reach its full potential and more than 12 meters of height.

 

It is important to regularily water and fertilize the bamboo. This bamboo tolerates lime soil quite well.

 

All photos are from our experimental filield in Assenovgrad, Bulgaria, zone 7b. We grow this bamboo there for more than 7 year

King Sago

Cycas revoluta, King Sago from Botanical garden - Plovdiv, Bulgaria

 

The Cycads are not a true palms, they are ancient gymnospermous plants, contemporary of the dinosaurus.

A huge fallacy about the King Sago is that they are difficult and demanding plants. This fallacy is supported by the wrong growing advices, that people receive at the flower shops.

The King Sago is a very easy to grow plant. What they need is regular watering and fertilizing. During the summer they need to be moved outside to a very bright light and should get at least 2-3 hours direct sun. During the winter they should be stored in a cool place with plenty of light.

The main problems with Cycads in pot are due to low light or too little water.

Red Abyssinian Banana, 'Maurelii'

Ensete ventricosum 'Maurelii', Red Abyssinian Banana

 

This is not a palm. Bananas are a monocotyledonous family of plants (Musaceae), that are closer to the grasses and have nothing to do with palms. From a botanical point of view, these are giant grasses. They develop a strong underground root mass called rhizome.

Japanese hardy banana

Japanese Hardy Banana

This is not a palm. Bananas are a monocotyledonous family of plants (Musaceae), that are closer to the grasses and have nothing to do with palms. From a botanical point of view, these are giant grasses. They develop a strong underground root mass called rhizome.

Musa basjoo is world famous as the cold hardiest banana. Like any other banana, its leaves will die off at temperatures below -2°C and trunks are damaged at temperatures below -7 to -8°C. But rhizome successfully overwinters in the ground and starts a new clump next spring. According to our experience, with an elementary and simple protection the rhizome will survive an air temperature below -25°C and start a new plant in early April.

Bananas grow very fast. Even after complete freezing of the green parts, in just a single growing season it will re-grow as a small banana forest with 3 to 5 meters of height. Of course, under the bananas the shade is thick.
