Phyllostachys nigra ‘Punctata’

44.0069.50

SKU: SKU-225 Category:

Description

Height: Up to 5 metres

Common Names: Blackspot Bamboo, Black Bamboo

The black bamboo is one of the most distinctive of the Phyllostachys group, with arching canes that may be as dark and shining as polished ebony. In Japan it is grown in temple gardens where only the most noble of plants are given space. The new culms start off pale-green and become marked with brown and black spots in the second season. Often the entire cane becomes suffused with deep black or purple which is effectively set off by a white bloom below the nodes. A froth of dark-green foliage adds to the dusky appearance of this thoroughly sophisticated plant – which we think looks best as a darkly-handsome lone specimen against a light background.
