As if bamboos were not exotic enough already, imagine one with dense, shiny black stems contrasting with bright green leaves. Black Bamboo gives you that stunning combination on a rapidly growing plant that will not spread but will stay as a dense clump just way you want it.

• Hardy to zero degrees
• Thrives in sun or shade
• Grows three feet a week without spreading sideways
• Wonderful instant screening plant
• Perfect for large containers too

Some large bamboos can be bullies and take over, but Black Bamboo is a gentle giant that will shoot up to 30 feet yet stay where you put it, just slowly expanding into a dense clump of exotic stems and rustling evergreen foliage. Each spring new shoots will burst from the ground and grow three feet a week to reach 20 feet or more in just a few weeks. The shiny ebony stems bring a wonderful richness to your garden and make an eye-catching container plant too.
