Phyllostrachys nigra

Running Black Bamboo has beautiful black canes with the contrast of fine green leaves. It grows best in cool, damp places with morning sun and is perfect for our cold climate in South Australia.

It is an exquisite feature bamboo and looks fantastic as a screen in a small garden, in a courtyard or as as an ornamental pot plant. It is best to surround with root barrier if planting in the garden. 3-4 metres.
