Java Black (Gigantochloa atroviolacea)
Gigantochloa Atroviolacea is from Indonesia and the most stunning black bamboo.
Grows 8-12 metres tall, with exposed poles and large tropical leaves. Poles are stronger and thicker than Timor Black, and have a more dark brown or dusty black colour. They are excellent for craft or being used for decorative poles.
This will handle cooler climates but extra care and rich soil is advised. Best as an ornamental.
