Phyllostachys nigra

Phyllostachys nigra (Phyllostachys nigra (Black bamboo))

Newly planted. Its canes have only just started to turn black - it will eventually contrast well with my P.aurea.

I think bamboo is a great plant. I have plans to add this one to my Japanese bit of the garden but the contrast with aurea might tempt me to get two ;o )

Hi there...
Be Warned ; I'm led to believe, that a good 80% of Black Bamboos (Phyllostachys nigra) die after it has flowered...

I have one in my back garden, which has already flowered twice within 12 months and fortunately, has survived !

Good luck with Your Black Bamboo Spritzhenry & Maple.

Thanks - I hope it doesn't die on far, so good. :-)
