Phyllostachys nigra 'Hale'

Black Bamboo

Max/Avg Height (ft.): 35, 20-25

Diameter: 2.25 inches

Hardiness: 5° F

USDA Zones: 7-10

It has jet black culms, the same as our other nigra, and like our other black they emerge green and then turn black in a while. The new culms sometimes turn black fairly quickly on our plants, but larger culms can take two or three years to darken. The first picture is in a grove of Hale, and as you can see not all culms are entirely black. The culms that are just beginning to turn black are about 9 or 10 months old. Hale is reported to be shorter and hardier than other clones but I am doubtful. It is probably just a nice clone of nigra.
