A unique, highly attractive, evergreen bamboo with thick stems and the potential to grow as high as 30 feet! The jet black culms and feathery green leaves make the Phyllostachys Nigra one of the most sought after bamboos.
This bamboo is hardy and easy to look after and once planted will provide you with a hassle free statement piece to add an oriental charm to your garden. Its non-invasive, clumping nature means that this plant is perfect for hedging or creating an uniquely luxurious privacy screening.
RHS has awarded this plant an Award of Garden Merit for its resistance to disease and pests as well as its stability of form and colour and reliable performance.
Fed up with receiving young, tiny plants from other retailers? We provide you with a plant at over 1.5m in a large 10L pot, with already darkened culms and plenty of beautiful green foliage - perfect if you dont want to have to wait 2 years for your plants to mature.
Caring and Maintenance
Remove weak, dead, damaged or spindly stems in spring. Cut out any flowering shoots promptly to discourage more from forming.
