Botanical / Common Name
Black Bamboo
Phyllostachys nigra

A fabulous bamboo with green leaves and contrasting ebony-black culms. Easy to grow both indoors and out.  If you grow as an interior it will do best in a cool place (40F-55F) in the winter. It is one of our most popular bamboos among Mid-Atlantic landscaper designers & architects.  Canes emerge green and turn to blick within a year or two.  It has graceful foliage and interesting cane coloration.  It is common to remove lower foliage to reveal the canes when used as a feature in design.
