Phyllostachys nigra Bamboo

Phyllostachys nigra
Phyllostachys nigra Phyllostachys nigra
Stock Number: 80364
Availability: In Stock
Family: Poaceae
Cultural Code: GH what's this?

One of the most sought after of the Bamboo cultivars, this Black Bamboo is not totally hardy in the North, but after a cool spell always darkens into a great looking plant. We grow this outside here, but it can be containerized easily and make a successful indoor container subject.

Cultural Codes

Some of you grow only indoors, some only in terrariums; many of you have hobby greenhouses; while a growing number of customers live in subtropical or tropical areas of the world. These brief codes are an attempt to suggest whether or not a particular plant will do well in your particular conditions.

If an entry has the cluster HP CGH, this means normal house plant culture will be successful if the plant is given a cool CGH moist location; however if the entry has the cluster CGH HP, you would interpret this to suggest that while Cool Greenhouse conditions are needed for total success with this plant, House Plant conditions will be adequate, while not ideal. If the cluster is HH CGH you would interpret this to mean that while in Zone 8 or below this will be winter hardy outdoor, further north it will need considerable mulch, a cold frame, or a Cool Greenhouse to thrive. And so on.
