Product Description

Cold Hardy and Ultra-Chic

Why Black Bamboo Plants?

Defined by its unique, fast-growing appearance and cold-hardy strength, Black Bamboo is a well-curated choice for indoors or outdoors. And since it's low-maintenance and hassle-free, it's perfect for beginner gardeners.

But what sets the Black Bamboo apart? For starters, the Black Bamboo withstands temperatures down to 0 degrees, making it one of the hardiest Bamboo varieties available. Gardeners in far-North states can plant their Bamboo in pots, then bring them inside for the winter.

Best of all, this tree's striking appearance is second to none. When your tree arrives, the shoots will be green. By the second year, (or even sooner!) they'll transition to a flat black color. Lush, deep green foliage provides an interesting contrast that is incomparable to other bamboos. It's an amazing addition to any garden as a focal point or a central part of your home decor.

Plus, it's a fast, durable grower that will claim 10 to 12 feet each year, ultimately reaching 25 feet in height. And since it's easy to tame, you can trim it to the height you desire. Some of our customers order several and plant them 3 to 5 feet apart to create a privacy screen!

Why Fast-Growing-Trees.com is Better

Effortlessly versatile and lush - is there anything better? We grow your Black Bamboo in their own containers from the very beginning, so you'll get a full, healthy root system that establishes quickly and explodes with new growth without all the work. More roots mean more canes that are healthy, thick and vigorous.

Other nurseries stock bare-root (if they even have the Black Bamboo at all). But when you order your Black Bamboo from Fast Growing Trees, you get a fast, easy grower that's ready to last year after year...without any hassle on your part.

The only catch is that you have to get your Black Bamboo before they're gone. Order your own Black Bamboo for instant luxe looks and easy grow today!


Planting & Care

1. Planting: For best results, give your Bamboo a sunny spot that will provide some shade in the winter. Bamboo prefers loamy soil which contains a mixture of sand, silt, and clay and offers good drainage. However, the Bamboo adapts to moist soil types, provided there is good drainage. Also, since the Bamboo’s root system is shallow, provide protection from high winds.

Dig a hole with the same depth as the plant’s container and about twice its width. Carefully place the Bamboo plant in the hole. Backfill, remove any air pockets that may have formed while filling the hole and test the sturdiness of the plant once it's in the ground to make sure winds will not be able to topple it. Water generously and tamp down the surrounding soil.

2. Watering: Water your Bamboo between 2 to 5 times each week as necessary. Water frequency will differ depending on the time of year and local climate conditions. Cooler locations typically require less frequent watering than warmer areas.

3. Fertilizing: Once your Bamboo becomes established, you should implement a regular fertilizing schedule. High-nitrogen organic fertilizer is the best choice for Bamboo. Apply once in the summer and again in the fall.

Arrived in good shape, packed well

The black bamboo plant arrived in good shape, a few dead/brown leaves that I removed immediately, but no real stalk damage or root damage. It was packed well to ensure the stalks stayed unbent/unbroken, thank you for that! It was also a foot or two taller than I expected. Would purchase again, lovely houseplant.

Very Healthy Plant

I received my block bamboo plant in excellent condition. It was a bit dried out from the journey, but after a repotting and a good soak it has been quite happy. There were three new shoots coming up when the plant arrived, unfortunately one of them broke in transit, but the other two are going strong. The packaging was not the best I have ever seen, but the plant itself certainly delivered.
