I planted this a couple summers ago and this week I noticed it sending p
a lot of new shoots. Does anybody know what species it is?

Thanks,

BTW the place where I got it was about to be bulldozed (new housing
development) and it was about 20-25 feet tall there. It also had a lot
of shoots so it's not a clumping type.

Looks to be a Phyllostachys Nigra variant. If there is no color change
after about 9 months I'd guess it's Ph. Nigra Henon
