This listing is for 1 14-16 inch root clump with many starter shoots ( aprox 10 gallon size starter plant ) With jet black culms and feathery green leaves, this is perhaps our most sought after bamboo. Under ideal conditions Black Bamboo will grow to 40 feet in height with culms over 2 inches in diameter, but 25 feet is its average height in most climates. Black bamboo (Phyllostachys nigra) is one of the most popular ornamental varieties of bamboo in China and Japan, but it is also one of the oldest varieties of bamboo grown in the United States, having first been introduced into the country in 1827. Black bamboo can grow anywhere from 20 to 30 feet in height and has a diameter of 1 to 2 inches.
There is always a contrast of light and dark culms balanced by slender, dark green leaves. This bamboo is initially slow to spread, through when mature, it can be quite vigorous. If planted in poor soil it tends to grow in a tight cluster, producing mostly thin, weepy culms.It makes an outstanding specimen, if well cared for, and can be the focal point of any garden. It can also be shaped to form a dense hedge for privacy.Expected
