A very popular and striking ornamental bamboo with glossy black culms. It makes a stunning feature plant. Defiantly one of our favourite black clumping bamboos.
Originally from Timor Island, has black stems which reach a maximum of 12 meters in height, and can be trimmed if necessary.
It grows in a circular fashion and slower than most bamboo. It prefers frost-free climates, as tropical or subtropical climates. They grow neat and quite tight.
Timor Black is a large, dark brown ornamental bamboo with deep dark green foliage. When these stems turn white / gray, it’s time to remove them to stimulate new shoots.
