Gigantochloa sp. Malaysian Black *New

A smaller black bamboo for gardens. Green culms darken to black with age. Green stripes sometimes remain on the black culms, creating a striking appearance. The Malaysian Black is a good alternative to Gigantochloa atroviolacea, which is sometimes too large for smaller gardens. The form is similar to G.atroviolacea but MAY grow to only about 1/2 the mature size. We're still test-growing this new import to confirm its mature size.
Note: This is the same species that has been sold under the trade name "Black Diamond".
Should grow to 20' with 1" diameter culms in Florida. Minimum temp. 29 degrees F. Min USDA zone: 9a. Click to find your zone.
