Phyllostachys are attractive, tall, evergreen bamboos that make an architectural statement in the garden. Best grown as a single specimen in a large garden. In the right conditions it can spread, so limit the roots with a non-perishable barrier.
Phyllostachys nigra Boryana is similar to Phyllostachys nigra, except that it’s culms are green flecked with black. An excellent, hardy specimen. It can grow up to 6m.
