This is the blackest of the black bamboo! Handsome jet black canes marked by bright white joints make this fast growing bamboo a must have for any collection. This line of bamboo comes directly from Kinkakuji (the Golden Pavilion) in Kyoto Japan where we won it in a drinking contest! We befriended the head groundskeeper who it turned out was quite fond of sake. Over dinner and a very long evening of drinking and bad karaoke we bet him that we would win the audiences approval with our rendition of “You’ve Lost That Loving Feeling”. All I can say was that it made sense at the time!
Bamboo is shipped as well rooted single culms which are cut to approximately 2.0’ in length and packed in moist sphagnum moss.
