With a great range of uses and a broad selection of habitats, bamboo is regarded as one of the most beneficial plants you can buy.
Bamboo deserves a modest introduction before we proceed to answer why it is undoubtedly the world’s most influential plant.
Bamboo is a woody, perennial evergreen plant which happens to be part of the true grass family. Despite the fact they can grow to towering heights, bamboo is not actually considered a tree.
Keeping the world's fastest growing plants from overtaking your yard had always been a problem with previous bamboo varieties.
Other nurseries send out invasive bamboo that can overtake your entire yard. However, your Black Bamboo Plants from Fast Growing Trees Nursery are less invasive than other running varieties.
Bamboo is the fastest growing privacy plant you can find, and it takes up very little room in your yard. It can grow as much as 10-12 feet a year!
Plant every 3 or 4 feet for a quick, dense privacy screen.
If you are familiar with bamboo, you’ll know that Black Bamboo is the most demanded variety.
Black Bamboo gives you all the admirable qualities of regular bamboo varieties, like its extreme growth rate, but with a unique black color.
And your bamboo stays where you want it, too!
Be sure to select a spot where you can allow this perfect specimen to mature naturally for a gorgeous and dramatic display.
Black Bamboo can serve as a beautiful, eye-catching privacy screen! And no matter where you live, you can enjoy the beauty of Black Bamboo.
If you want to control the size or height of your bamboo and retain its natural look, this can be done by removing new shoots that are significantly larger in diameter so that it will not grow so tall.
Or, try one of our new varieties: the "Sunset Glow". This is a green bamboo and is one of the most popular dwarf varieties, making it perfect for small areas.
Maturing up to just 6-8 ft. tall, the Sunset Glow bamboo is perfect around gardens, patios, or when lining your property.
This is perhaps the easiest-to-grow bamboo variety available. It's incredibly cold-hardy, growing in zones 5-9 and withstanding temperatures as cold as -20° F.
It's harsh sunlight tolerant, and can endure heat and drought conditions. In fact, its leaves won't curl up and shrivel due to lack of water, unlike other needy bamboo varieties.
The Sunset Glow's deep green foliage stands out against its orange-red stems, making it a colorful accent plant.
This bamboo variety is non-aggressive and non-invasive. It won't run all over your yard like "running" bamboos. It "clumps", meaning it’s much easier to maintain.
