Giant Black  (Shiny jet-black culms, likes shade, leans)
Phyllostachys nigra 'Daikokuchiku'

This California species is much larger than black bamboo. Its large, jet-black canes turn black faster as well. New shoots are green but turn black by next season. Beautiful, lacy green foliage. A stunning giant. Good for grove and isolated clump but best mixed with other bamboo. Will grow in full sun but looks better as understory or with partial shade.

Height Range: 20-40'
Typical Diameter: 2"
Exposure: partial-full sun
Minimum Temp: 0 deg F
