We started the Ozark Bamboo Garden in Northwest Arkansas as an excuse to grow as much bamboo as we had space for. Out of a collection of about 103 varieties, we are propagating about 50 species, 40 of which are now in trial plantings around our nursery. We like having bamboo all over the yard and are always seeing something new in this beautiful and diverse family. We were fortunate to find additional land to grow more bamboo. On our new land, we built another greenhouse and new garden center and called it Bear Creek Nursery.
