Bamboo Fargesia 'Simba' 5 Litre: Fargesia Simba is an extremely compact Bamboo plant that was primarily designed for smaller gardens or pot planting, or for people that "Dont want it to take over" The foliage is pale green as are the culms. The whole effect is very elegant. Height reaches a maximum of approximately 2 metres (6.5ft) with a spread of 50-80cm. It is considered one of the most hardy fargesia plants and can withstand extreme low or even extreme high temperatures, the latter of which we are unfortunately unlikely to see in the Uk! Simba is so hardy it is considered one of the best looking Bamboo for the winter months.

What to expect: Your plant will arrive in planted in a 5 litre pot, size excluding pot is 60-80cm

Simba are a highly adaptable Fargesia. For best results Plant in any free draining soil damp soil. 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
