Phyllostachys nigra 'Bory'
(Tiger Bamboo)

A cultivar that orignated from Japan, this bamboo develops dark markings and patterns on it's culms that resemble that of a Tiger. New culms emerge green and slowly develop the markings as the culm ages. The markings sometimes cover the whole entire culm. Unlike it's original form, 'Tiger Bamboo' grows more vigorously with taller and thicker culms. Combined with the smaller leaves, it enhances the beauty of the ornamental culms.
