(Phyllostachys nigra) Very fashionable evergreen bamboo. The black bamboo canes give great contrast with the green leaves. An ok bamboo plant for screening but not as good as the Bisset or Golden Crookstem. Best in full sun to partial shade in moist soils. Grows to five meters planted in the ground or three meters when potted. But can be pruned down to any height.
Displaying the size of the bamboo can be confusing, there are two sizes to be aware of, the size we deliver to you, and the size the bamboo grows to. The size shown by the 'Add to basket' button, is the size we deliver to you, this is what will arrive on your doorstep. For example if the size states [12 litre pot, 1.6m tall - £39.95] you will receive a lovely bamboo plant in a 12 litre pot measuring at least 1.6m above the pot, and it will cost £39.95.
The 'other' height, the height the bamboo will grow to, is shown in the bamboo description.
Also the physical size of the pots the bamboo comes in can be confusing, below are some sample pot sizes shown in height and width in cm.
5 litre pot - 22cm x 15cm, 10 litre pot - 26cm x 22cm,
12 litre pot - 28cm x 24cm, 18 litre pot - 30cm x 26cm
Each order comes with a care sheet and complimentary Bamboo fertilizer.
