Are you thinking about adding a living fence to your landscape? Looking for something evergreen without the pine tree look? Look no further than the stunning and unique Black Bamboo.
This Bamboo does not have the obnoxious, invasive qualities of other runners. It is much easier to control. You won't be fighting intense roots year after year! Instead you can watch your Black Bamboo flourish without breaking your back. And the best part is you still can enjoy the rapid growth of bamboo! This variety can grow 10 to 12 feet per year.
And how about that color? The young canes start out green, but as they mature they develop that to die for black color. The thin, green leaves look lively, dancing in the wind, over those unique, dark canes.
Black Bamboo is disease, deer, and pest resistant as well as drought tolerant. This bamboo can grow in full or part sun and adapts to any soil. Bamboo is extremely low maintenance.
Plant in a cluster in your yard or garden for a unique look. Try Black Bamboo as a backdrop in your garden or as a unique screen. This zen plant even thrives in containers, inside or out.

Questions and Answers
Unpack all of your plants right away! Look for the perfect location. Make sure you are planting in the correct light conditions.
Dig a hole twice the width of the root ball. Position your plant in the hole. Make sure the top of the root ball is slightly higher than the original grade of the bed. Also check to make sure it is straight from all sides.
Fill up hole with water before placing new plant in hole in order to saturate the surrounding soil. Once the water is absorbed place your plant in the hole and water thoroughly.
Mix the potting soil and the soil removed from the hole. Start by backfilling soil around the root ball. Carefully pack in the soil to remove any air pockets. Water plant thoroughly again until the soil will not hold any more water. This will ensure that your new plant will be a success.
Fertilize around your plant with the amount recommended on the package. Our special Fertilizer contains all of the nutrients to keep your plants growing and healthy. Repeat every 3 months.
Finish up by mulching around your new plant. Apply 2 - 3 inches of mulch around the plant and plant bed. Mulch will help keep the soil moist and keep weeds out.
Keep watered with a hose every 2-3 days for 2 weeks. This is critical for plant survival. In the third week, begin to water as needed depending on the weather. Always check by placing your finger under the mulch to see if the soil is moist.
