Gigantochloa atroviolacea (Java Black)
Put simply...if you want black, then the Java Black is the best. The sooty black culms and large lush leaves make this bamboo a spectacular feature plant. It is quite a large bamboo, so best suited to large blocks of land and acreage. Great timber.
This is pure magic in any garden. A beautiful centerpiece if space permits its largish size. It's commonly known as 'Java Black' and features very dark culms with thin green stripes. Fairly tight clumping and erect culms.
This species is the best 'black bamboo' available due to its rich colour, predominant white nodes and its ability to resist colour loss (fading) due to sun exposure (like the other black bamboos do).
The timber is excellent - very dense heavy timber and reasonably thick walled. Great for any sort of construction, furniture, fencing, etc.
Will grow in southern temperate climates, though may not reach full height.
