Black Bamboo Phyllostachys nigra / Subtropical / Ornamentals

A stunning running Bamboo. New culms emerge green every spring and gradually turn black in one to three years. P. nigra should be given a generous layer of rich topsoil, composed of compost or aged manure and mulch, and space to grow unimpeded. It makes an outstanding specimen.

These are now available in a neat manageable 60cm cube which has a 1 metre depth rootball. These can be freighted.

They weigh approx. 60-80kg each. You would ideally need at least an 80cm garden bed width or a 200l pot with a wide base and a depth of 1.2 metres to really set these off so that they can happily grow unimpeded.

It would pay to be mindful of their running nature and provide barriers to overly rampant growth.

  • Prefers full sun, but will tolerate part shade.
  • Medium wind tolerant.
  • Will tolerate light frosts only.
  • Grows to a height of 10 metres (approx).
  • Perfect for screening or hedging.
  • Requires adequate moisture.
