black bamboo
black bamboo £19.99
Position: full sun or partial shadeSoil: humus-rich, moist, well-drained soilRate of growth: fast growingHardiness: fully hardyOne of the most elegant bamboos, with polished, damson-black mature canes and dark green leaves. The slender, arching canes, which are dark green for the first two or three years, look perfect in a contemporary, minimalist garden particularly if the low-growing foliage is stripped. Although this is not one of the more vigorous and invasive bamboos, it is advisable to restrict the roots using a rigid, non-perishable barrier to prevent the plant from colonising adjacent plantings. Garden care: Plant in a large container or surround the roots with a non-perishable barrier that restricts the plant’s spread. Water regularly until established. Bamboos do not like competition, so are best planted en masse in a designated area of the garden.
