Bamboo Fargesia 'Simba' 15 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 Expexct: Established bushy plants in large 15 litre pots, currently 60/80cm - nice plants, as pictured. 

Planting Position: For best results Fargesia Simba should be planted in a bright sunny spot, will also be happy in light shaded areas, equally happy in ground or pot.

Soil: A highly adaptable plant for all soil types, however it is not suited to wet, boggy ground.

Suitable for container planting: Yes a perfect choice for containers, will need repotting approximately every 2-3 years into larger pots and fresh compost.

Eventual height and spread: Maximum 2 metres high with a 50-80cm metre spread.

Growth speed: Relatively quick.

Growth habit: Upright canes similar to Fargesia Jumbo in looks but a smaller version all round, height, spread, foliage

Flowering Period: Not Applicable.

Pruning: Not Necessary

Foliage: Narrow pale green leaves on mid green canes Evergreen: Yes, but like most Bamboo Fargesia Simba will shed some older foliage in late Autumn through to early Winter, this is not a cause for concern and is perfectly normal, they will soon be replaced when the temperatures start to rise in spring.

Hardiness: Whole of the UK to -30

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

A tree that requires virtually no maintenance, its fully hardy and being a pot grown multi stem does not even require a stake. Can be planted in all soil types, it does best in a moist well drained area in full sun through to partial shade. Remove any winter damaged branches in spring.
