Fargesia ‘Black Dragon’

Black Bamboo

(1 customer review)


Fargesia ‘Black Dragon’ is an exciting newly introduced clumping black bamboo sure to become a massive hit with bamboo fans.With it’s deep glossy black to purple black canes, deep green leaves and upright clump forming habit Fargesia ‘Black Dragon’ has a lot to offer. We also expect ‘Black Dragon’ to lose around 30% of it’s lush foliage during late autumn, this is perfectly normal, and doesn’t in any way detract from its beauty. In fact it exposes the canes a little more showing off the deep glossy black colour. Fargesia ‘Black Dragon’ is tolerant of both sun and shade but should be planted away from exposed windy positions particularly if it’s in full sun. It will also like most Fargesia grow well in a container.
