Why does my bamboo have no leaves
Oxfordshire, United Kingdom
I've moved into a house with this bamboo in the garden. It gets a lot of sun. The plant has never had any leaves on it but continues to try to grow them. There are some new thinner canes growing but no leaves. On some of the canes I can see some green mildew type stuff near the branches, where leaves should be. I know nothing about bamboo can anyone help. I would love to be able to see it healthy. I was also wondering whether it had flowered and it that was the problem. I don't know How I could tell if it had flowered.
On plant Phyllostachys nigra
