Bamboo for ID, Auroville, Tamil Nadu NAW-MAR17-07 : 4 posts by 2 authors. Attachments (3)

Kindly identify this bamboo with dark culms about 4-5 cms. in diameter, photographed at the Auroville Botanical Garden, Tamil Nadu in March 2017.

Height of culms about 6 metres.

The photographs are limited but i hope the peculiar color of the culms allow some kind of identification.


I think this is Gigantochloa atroviolacea

This bamboo was again seen in the same cultivated garden in Thane in December 2016.

Is this the black bamboo, Phyllostachys nigra?
