Timor Black Bamboo
Bambusa lako This fast growing clump-forming bamboo has shiny dark chocolate to nearly black colored culms with some thin green striping and medium to large bright green leaves on the upper half of the plant. The culms are straight and erect to about 45 to 50 feet tall with a 4 inch diameter in the tropics, but more in the 20 to 30 foot range elsewhere. Though considered a clumping bamboo, the new culms can arise up to 2 feet away from the base, so older clumps are relatively open with new shoots starting off a medium-green color and darkening as they mature. Plant in full sun with regular irrigation and fertilize often. Grows best in warm conditions with only light frosts. Flowers in US prove it to be Bambusa. From Timor.
