Here's the Magic... with as little as 3-4 feet, you get a privacy screen that makes fences, walls, or neighbors disappear.
You can now enjoy a natural living wall with a tropical feel.

Bamboo is a perfect Privacy Screen, but Keeping the world's fastest growing plants from overtaking your yard had always been a problem with previous bamboo varieties.
Most bamboo varieties can get out of control and grow into your yard. Black Bamboo is different. It's well behaved and easy to keep right where you want it. The new shoots start out green and then turn black with age. So you will get a small color show in your garden.
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 your potted bamboo 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.
Be sure to select a spot that you can allow this perfect specimen to mature naturally for a gorgeous and dramatic display.

We are a huge Black Bamboo grower, and we sell out every year. We recommend you place your order soon while supplies are still available.
Plant your Black bamboo in an area that receives full to partial sunlight. Black Bamboo can tolerate full sun but prefers areas that receive afternoon shade. Plant your Black Bamboo plants about 3 feet apart for a privacy fence, and if potted indoors place your Black Bamboo by a large sunny window. Black Bamboo will adapt to your natural soil even if it's sandy or heavy in clay, as long as it's well draining. Water your Black Bamboo twice a week. Keep your soil moist but not over saturated. If conditions are dry, hot or windy your Black Bamboo may need extra water. Fertilize your Black Bamboo early Spring and Fall early in the season. Use a fertilizer that's high in nitrogen. We recommend formula 10-10-10 or 20-20-20.
Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Black Bamboo.
First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.
Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.
Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.
Next, separate the roots of your Black Bamboo gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.
The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.
Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.
To make it just right, use a level.
As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.
Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.
Water your Black Bamboo again after the transplant is complete.
To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.
