Phyllostachys nigra, commonly known as Black Bamboo, is a distinctive and visually striking bamboo species. Native to China, this clumping bamboo is renowned for its tall, straight culms (stems) that emerge green but gradually turn ebony-black as they mature.
As a clumping bamboo, Phyllostachys nigra forms dense, upright clusters without spreading aggressively through runners. This makes it suitable for controlled garden spaces or as an ornamental feature.
Black Bamboo is adaptable to a variety of soil types but thrives in well-drained, fertile soils. It prefers full to partial sun exposure. This bamboo species is generally hardy and can withstand a range of climates
