Most species of Bambusa, including Buddha Belly, are native to Southeast Asia, China and Melanesia. More specifically, Buddha Belly is indigenous to Vietnam and the Guangdong province of southern China. It can also grow happily in subtropical regions around the world.

Temperature

Buddha Belly and Giant Buddha Belly are somewhat cold-hardy, and a mature plant will be more cold-resistant than a young one. In some cases, they can survive temperatures as low as 20º F.

Dwarf Buddha Belly bamboo is going to be less cold and hardy. For this reason, the dwarf variety is more popular in places like Florida and Southern California where it’s not likely to freeze. But a little overnight frost probably won’t kill it.
