(Dendrocalamus asper 'Hitam')
Black Asper is a part of our unique & unusual bamboo range of which we have a small selection available. These beautiful species of bamboo are not the popular types that sell on mass, but rather the specialised rarer varieties for bamboo enthusiasts and collectors.
Black Asper is a beautiful ornamental black bamboo with a dusty grey effect on the culms that makes the bamboo appear mystical and ancient. It has a unique shape with arching and bowing culms in a very open clump. It has large leaves and is naturally clean stemmed without much lower foliage.
Black Asper looks best as a single feature, and looks particularly spectacular with night lighting. It is fairly slow growing compared to most bamboo species, but is extremely low maintenance once established. It is also very drought tolerant, so perfect for acreage.
Follow our bamboo planting guide (provided with your purchase) to achieve the best results. The guides are helpful and easy to follow, and assist you in achieving the best results in the shortest amount of time. Most of the effort in growing your bamboos is preparation and the first few months after planting.

The approximate size of bamboo is only a guide. Plant measurements are taken from the bottom of the pot.
The sizing of plants does vary, particularly through different seasons of the year.
The most valuable part of the bamboo is the rootball size within the pots, which produces incredibly fast growth once planted.
