Description How to Grow More Info Delivery Reviews
Umbrella Bamboo are easy to grow and quick to fill out, making them a top foliage choice for privacy screening and blocking road noise and traffic pollution. Clump forming Fargesia 'Asian Wonder' is even more of a treat, with ruby red stems and olive green foliage giving it an incredibly tropical appearance. As the canes mature, strip some of the lower foliage away to show off the highly decorative stems. A top architectural plant for adding structure and movement to the garden. Height: 3m (10'). Spread: 1.2m (4').

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.
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.

Just received my plant 2016-04-08

Well, I've only just received my plant and it's green!!! Are you sure the plant changes as it matures?

T&M replied on 2016-08-05: Thank you very much for your review. I can confirm the Umbrella Bamboo will arrive green but once established and your bamboo begins to mature it will then sprout the red canes. I hope this helps.

Asian wonder 2016-03-29

I received my plant last autumn and kept it in my greenhouse over winter as it looked a little frail for the harsh frosts but now in late March I am delighted to have 3 new shoots and what looks like a very healthy bamboo. The colours of the new shoots are as expected and I cannot wait to watch it grow this year. Thank you.
