Bamboo Fargesia Scabrida – Commonly known as the Asian Wonder Bamboo. It  has perhaps the best colours of all hardy clumping Bamboo, young culms are covered in dark rusty orange sheaths that open to reveal blue almost purple culms that slowly fade to a deep green. Similar in growth habit to the more commonly known Fargesia Robusta Campbell (upright, vigorous, very sun tolerant, excellent for hedging or screening) Foliage is mid to dark green slim and long. It is a non-invasive vigorous upright grower, ideal for both ground and container planting.

An excellent Bamboo to divide and grow on, culms have a good space which makes for simple dividing, new divisions have an extremely high survival rate and a lot less leaf loss than the more common Fargesia Bamboo's, they recover quickly to continue growing.

In its homeland it is known as one of the Giant pandas favourite Bamboo, however that’s not something us the UK have to be too concerned with!

What to expect:  Your plant will arrive planted in a 5 litre/23 cm pot, it will have an actual height excluding the pot of approximately 60/80cm, nice fresh plants.

Planting position: Best suited to a sunny spot but will cope well in a partially shade area

Soil: Like most plants in the garden will do best in free draining rich moist soil, however that being said it is also suitable for both loam and clay, (but not to heavy) add some manure or fertiliser to give new plants a boost.

Suitable for Container planting: Great choice for containers but make sure they have plenty of water.

Eventual height and spread: Overall height 3- 4 metres with a spread of 1-1.5 metres.

Pruning: Not really necessary but any winter damage can be removed immediately, if you are pruning to restrict height this is best done during the dormant months Growth speed: Quick almost Vigorous Growth Habit: Upright with slight draping habit.

Flowering period: Not Applicable

Evergreen: Yes, but like most Bamboo it will shed some foliage in late autumn/ early winter this is not a cause for concern it will soon be replaced once the temperatures start to rise

Winter Hardy: -20.

For best results when planting break the soil and add some well-rotted manure or organic fertiliser, this not only invigorates the soil but also helps the area retain moisture. Feed with a Nitrogen based food during spring and a balanced fertiliser during the growing season April through to late August. Always ensure an adequate water supply especially for young pot planted plants.

Bamboo Fargesia Scabrida 5 litre: This beautiful Bamboo was identified in the early 1970s and only came into commercial grower’s hands in 1997, so a relatively new cultivar. It was discovered in the mountainous region of ‘Pingwu’ China at an altitude of over 8500ft, making it extremely winter hardy and one of the "evergreenest" clumping Bamboo available.
