Fargesia robusta

Fargesia robusta

A handsome, adaptable, non-invasive bamboo, Fargesia robusta is a large, evergreen, clump-forming, quite fast-growing bamboo with a tall, upright habit. The long, lance-shaped leaves are mid-green on top and blue-green underneath, and the almost vertical blue-green culms (stems), which emerge early, grow paler as they age. Creamy-white to brownish flowers may appear in summer. Fargesia robusta can be grown as a stand-alone specimen or as a hedge or screen in larger gardens. This bamboo is tough, cold-tolerant, and, if given a good mulch in spring, drought-tolerant once fully established. Needs no pruning, and holds the RHS Award of Garden Merit.
