Black Bamboo Phyllostachys nigra - Zone 5-11
Add a little Zen to your garden! Black bamboo is a great variety of bamboo that can handle the cold winter nights of Santa Fe.
Can be used as a privacy screen since this bamboo is an evergreen. A fast grower that can quickly reach 20' tall. Can be invasive and spreads quickly if runners (spreading shoots) are not cut back.
Plant in full to partial sun and water regularly, keeping the soil evenly moist for best growth. Looks great around water features and pairs very well with Japanese Maple trees.
