Nigra (Phyllostachys nigra - running bamboo) - Recommended for pots only
The iconic 'Black Bamboo'. A striking plant with glossy ebony black culms, this bamboo is very popular for those wanting a feature plant. New culms are intially green and these will gradually change to a black. This creates a nice contrast between ongoing green and black stems. This plant can be affected by scorching full sun so partial shade is reccomended.
This is the only running bamboo variety that we stock. Due to its invasive root system, this bamboo is not reccomended for planting in the ground. It is however an excellent speciment for pots. We suggest large pots/planter boxes.
