It is a new-generation bamboo which means unlike its predecessor it will not flower in the coming decades. This seedling is a selection from the botanical garden on the Isle of Man.

Bamboo Fargesia nitida 'Great Wall' has been cultivated from a  special selection of seedlings of Fargesia Nitida following its widespread flowering and subsequent demise a few years ago. This new genus is an extremely hardy, erect and quick growing cultivar that is almost identical to the original form. Canes are initially upright, successive years growth make them arch elegantly under the weight of foliage -the foliage itself is mid-green and is generously produced on many side branches. Makes a choice as single either planted in a pot or border  or alternatively planted to create a screen or hedge.

. Are they evergreen Bamboo are an evergreen, perennial and a member of the grass family. Fast growing, they take up very little lateral space and yet they can reach fabulous heights extremely quickly, making bamboo a very cost effective choice when you need screening fast! They will naturally shed some leaf during the winter months. .How much water do they need Like any other plant, bamboo needs three basic things in order to survive. Soil, sun and water. And as a gardener, one of your greatest responsibilities is to provide your bamboo with water. They are an incredibly thirsty plant and will require watering on a daily basis especially during hot periods. .Will it need a root barrier Fargesia are a non invasive clumping bamboo and will not require a root barrier. Phyllostachys, Aureosulcata and Pseudosasa are all ‘runners’ which can be either planted in a larger pot or with a root barrier in the ground. .How quickly will it grow This really is dependent on watering sunshine and care. You would hope to achieve at least another third in growth during the growing season. .How far apart should I plant them Space mature plants 1 metre apart to form a dense screen. Fast Growing varieties can be planted a little further apart if you don't mind waiting longer for them to fill in the gaps.
