Phyllostachys nigra, commonly known as Black Bamboo, is a stunning and highly sought-after bamboo species prized for its striking black-colored culms. This running bamboo can reach heights of up to 30 feet, with canes that emerge green before gradually turning jet black, creating a dramatic contrast against its lush green foliage. The culms feature distinctive nodes and slender, arching branches adorned with lance-shaped leaves. Black Bamboo thrives in well-draining soil and partial to full sun.
