Description
Black Bamboo is a very popular bamboo. Unfortunately nigra is the only bamboo blacks that survivor to Victoria's climate. We have tested and trailed many black clumping and have been unsuccessfully. Nigra is a very upright bamboo. New cane starts off green and turns black with age and exposed to sun. Leaves can brown off at the tips due to under watering and too much hot sun, and hot winds. Black will look great in part sun and protection from hot afternoon sun. Keep moist and well fertilised. As Nigra is a running bamboo it can be planted in big pots or long planter pots, Nigra can also be planted in high raised garden beds to create a beautiful grove.
