Bamboo Fargesia Nitida Black Pearl 7.5 Litre 60/80cm: Fargesia Nitida Black Pearl as the name suggests is a dark coloured non invasive Fargesia Bamboo, canes are not as dark as a Phyllostachys Nigra but  they are as dark as they come in a non invasive Fargesia type. These are quick growing Bamboo that will produce an impressive number of new culms annually, reaching heights upto 3.5 metres at maturity. Whilst the Black pearl name suggest canes are black, in our opinion they are more a very deep purple. Growth habit is upright and draping, initially culms emerge deep red and straight as arrows with maturity the culms darken and as the foliage emerges it becomes more arched. 

What to expect: Your plant will arrive with an actual height at the tallest point of approximately 80cm.

Planting position: Plant in sun or partial shade for best results and keep sheltered from cold, dry winds. Whilst Black Pearl reputedly favours full sun, in our experince we find they do better in a bright spot but out of full sun. 

Soil: Suited to almost all soil types, excluding clay and waterlogged areas

Suitable for Container planting: Great for containers, for best results grow in loam based compost.

Eventual height and spread: Overall height upto approximately 3.5 metres and a spread of 1-1.5 metres.

Pruning: Remove damaged and dead stems in spring. Or can be pruned late summer to restrict height. 

Growth speed: Quick

Evergreen? Yes, but like all Bamboo may shed some older leaves late Autumn through to early winter this is not a cause for concern as they will soon be replaced once the temperatures start to rise.

Winter Hardy? Full hardy for the whole Uk to -15 Plant in a sheltered area to avoid cold, dry winds, try adding some slow release granular food to the pot or planting area

Due to the open culm habit these plants can be divided, and placed into smaller pots for growing, to prevent rootshock we recommend this is done during the dormant season.
