Phyllostachys atrovaginata was previously also called the Phyllostachys congesta. The Phyllostachys atrovaginata is a very fast growing bamboo. It is an ideal bamboo for setting up a high (view) partition or as a large solitary. Partly because of the rapid growth but also the diameter of the stems is decent and these can be 6 to 7 cm in diameter.
The leaves are light green and small.

The stems grow up straight and can be 8 to 9 meters high.
The Phyllostachys atrovaginata has an unusual feature and hence the name Green Perfume.
On the stems is a wax layer that smells like sandalwood that makes incense.
This bamboo has air channels in the rhizomes and roots that are adapted for growing in wet areas. The ideal bamboo for planting in wetlands.
This does not mean that this bamboo only comes into its own in wet areas, even in normal soil Phyllostachys atrovaginata is doing fine.

In spring the new shoots come in which have a very nice pattern. The young bamboo shoots of the Phyllostachys atrovaginata are also edible and one of the best tasting.
Refresh light from the spring and during the summer for a healthy growth of the new shoots.
This bamboo also rages aggressively and requires a root barrier.
Winter hardiness zone 6a (-24ºC).
