Umbrella Bamboo 'Selection' (Large Plant)

Fargesia murieliae, Arundinaria murielae, Sinarundinaria murielae

Hardy Perennial

The Umbrella Bamboo can reach more than 2 metres tall, and quickly forms clumps of arching yellow-green canes, topped with foliage like an umbrella! This hardy bamboo is excellent for screening, and is especially useful in urban areas, where the screening can help reduce road noise and filter pollution.

Bamboo are fantastically tropical looking, but are very easy and quick to grow. Fargesia is wind resistant and tolerates shade or sun, making it a versatile plant for filling awkward spots in the garden and hiding unsightly features. Height: Up to 4m (12'). Spread: 1.5m (4.9').

When growing Umbrella Bamboo in pots, choose a soil based compost such as John Innes No. 3. Repot the plant, firming well into the new container, then water well and position in full sun or semi shade. Alternatively plant Umbrella Bamboos directly into borders in any moist, free draining soil. Bamboos dislike poor, dry soils. If your soil is particularly free draining, improve it by adding plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost prior to planting. Choose a sheltered position that is protected from cold, drying winds. Fargesia murieliae spreads via underground rhizomes so is best given space to grow. Alternatively surround the roots with a barrier to restrict the plant's spread.
Feed and water bamboo plants regularly, particularly when grown in containers. Repot into successively larger containers as plants increase in size. Once bamboo plants are established, thin out any weak, damaged or unwanted canes in spring, cutting them back to ground level, and apply a mulch of well rotted manure or compost to the base of the plant. Mature bamboos can be divided in spring if clumps become congested.
