Bamboo Semi Arundinaria Fastuosa 12 Litre: Also known as Narihira Bamboo. This is an excellent Bamboo if you are looking for height and structure in your garden but are limited for space. This is a very well behaved plant which is tight clumping and quick to mature. The new canes of this bamboo variety emerge pure green they grow vertically, as straight as arrows, maturing to a shade of purple. This plant distinguishes from the Phyllostachys species by producing more branches per node over the years. Due to its behaviour we have heard this plant being referred to as the 'Noble Bamboo'. Unlike other Phyllostachys varieties there is no need to use a rhizome barrier.

What to expect: These are well established plants, currently standing at approximately 2.5 metres, as photographed. Unfortunately unless you live in one of our delivery areas which are predominantly, but not limited to south of the nursery in Worcestershire, courier height restrictions mean we will have to cut these plants to reduce height to 175cm, this will have no ongoing damage and the plants will soon replenish. If its essential you receive the plants at the current heights please contact us prior to purchase to discuss delivery options. 

Planting Position: Equally happy in full sun through to semi shade away from exposed windy sites.

Eventual Height and Spread: In the UK it can and often does reach 5 metres tall with a 2.5 metres spread. In terms of spreading this is an extremely well behaved Phyllostachys

Bamboo Growth Speed: A relatively quick growing Bamboo, with 3 - 4 new culms per year, the new ones are always taller than the old.

Flowering Period: Not applicable.

Pruning: Not necessary.

Evergreen: Yes

Winter Hardy: Yes suitable for the coldest parts of the UK to -20.
