NOTE: As of 2023 this species has begun to flower. Phyllostachys Bamboo only flowers once every 100 years, then dies after flowering. We will be glad to offer substitutions from another Phyllostachys species in the event any Black Bamboo purchased from us after Jan 1, 2023 dies off. Please email us and include your order number for further details.

Bamboo goes through a shooting phase from Spring to Mid-Summer. Orders received after May 1st may not be able to ship until Mid-July. Please note that some years bamboo incurs winter injury from extreme cold and will only be available in July after the new growth hardens.

We can only ship Bamboo plants up to 5-7′ tall. If we receive an order for taller sizes without an e-mail about pickup or delivery, we will ship 5-7′ tall plants and issue a refund for the difference.
