Black asper

Betung Hitam.  Dendrocalamus asper

This is it! The legendary giant black bamboo from Indonesia.

When grown with sufficient water, this plant will grow upwards of 80 feet tall, 90 – 100 feet is not unrealistic.
Canes 10 -12 inches in diameter.

As with other black bamboos, the canes will retain their color post harvest.

The shoots are of very good quality, and lumber is amongst the best that bamboos have to offer.

All in all, pretty outstanding.Black asper bamboo.
