Bamboo Fargesia Murielae 5 Litre - The Umbrella Bamboo. A Fantastic extremely hardy Fargesia Bamboo. Considered by Ernest Wilson, who introduced this cultivar in 1910 to be one of the most beautiful and adapatable species of the plant. New shoots have a blueish tone that turns green/yellow with age. Like all other fargesia it does not produce running rhinzomes so there is no need to worry about spreading or the need for root barriers.

What to expect: Your plants will arrive with an actual plant size of 40cm plus, planted in a 5 Litre Pot, and will look just like the picture.

Planting Position: Full sun through to partial shade.

Soil: For best results plant in Humus rich well drained soil.

Suitable for container planting: Yes and ideal choice for containers, also superb in the ground. Ideal choice to create an informal hedge if this is your desired effect we recommend planting at intervals of approximately 70/80cm.

Eventual height and spread: Upto approximately 2 metres, maybe a liitle higher but only in optimum planting location and maintenance.

Growth spead: Relatively quick.

Growth Habit: Upright with a cascading habit.

Flowering Period. Not Applicable

Pruning: Not necessary unless you wish to restrict height to create a more compact growth.

Foliage: Bright green, dense, cascading.

Evergreen: Yes, but will have some yellowing of leaves that will shed in late autumn/ early winter, this is perfectly normal. Hardiness: Yes fully winter hardy can withstand temperatures of -20 without issue.

Plant in any free draining soil damp soil preferably out of hot midday sun (warmer areas of the UK ) and sheltered from strong winds. In early spring feed with a liquid food with a high nitrogen content, this will help promote new growth and give the plant a boost after the dormant period. In summer a slow release fertiliser is preferable. As with most plants, especially Bamboo always ensure the plant has an adequate water supply especially when planted in a container. This Bamboo requires no special treatment or requirements during the winter months.

The Bamboo Fargesia Murielae dates back to 1892. It was collected by the French Missionary P Farges.

. 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.
