Phyllostachys nigra 'Henon'

Henon

Max/Avg Height (ft.): 65, 45

Diameter: 3.5 inches

Hardiness: -5° F

USDA Zones: 7-10

This green culmed timber bamboo is thought to be the true species from which "Black Bamboo" originated. In the Pacific Northwest it is one of the largest bamboos. There are mature stands that reach a height of 50 feet with a culm diameter of nearly 4 inches. The wood of this species has greater density and strength than most other timber bamboo except P. bambusoides. It may be much hardier than 0° F, possibly hardy to -10° F. The culms age to a distinct olive grey color; some call it “Giant Grey Bamboo." Its vigorous growth, feather-like leaf pattern, and upright habit make 'Henon’ one of the finest choices for a true bamboo forest.
