The Plant Attraction


Phyllostachys nigra
Also known as: Black Bamboo

This striking evergreen bamboo is prized as a garden ornamental with 15-25ft. tall, upright, polished black canes that arch slightly at the top. Olive green at first, the 2" culms quickly become mottled with brown-black before maturing to almost jet black within 2-3 years. Since the culms to not mature at the same time, there is always a rich display of green and black culms. They contrast beautifully with the short and narrow, glossy green leaves, up to 5". Vigorous, this running bamboo makes an outstanding specimen or focal point in the landscape. It can also be used as a screen and can be grown in containers.

It prefers full sun or partial shade and is best grown in fertile, humus-rich, moist but well-drained soils. Best if planted in an open position but may remain clump-forming in poor or dry soils. USDA Zones: 7-10
