Phyllostachys nigra is one of the few running bamboos we sell, as it is the only black bamboo that will grow well in pots.

Featuring stunning jet black canes which begin green, changing to black with sun exposure.  Small green leaves contrast beautifully with these jet black canes making Nigra the perfect garden centrepiece.  Also ideal for an eye catching hedge or screen and looks classy in a decorative pot.  For best colour, plant in a sunny position. Will tolerate coastal conditions and withstand temperatures below zero. 

We sell them in pot sizes:
200mm pots $88ea
250mm pots $132ea
300mm pots $165ea
330mm pots $198ea
The height and size of the actual bamboo in the pot varies with each species. For availability and any further information on sizing options and pricing, please call us on (07) 55 731 844 or email us at
