Fargesia Red Panda = 'Jiu' (umbrella bamboo)

Fargesia Red Panda = ‘Jiu’ (umbrella bamboo) was £49.99 now £39.99
Position: full sun or partial shade Soil: humus-rich, moist, well-drained soil Rate of growth: average to fast growing Hardiness: fully hardy The upright canes of this beautiful, clump-forming bamboo emerge green, but turn golden orange, then rich reddish brown in their second or third year. This effect is more pronounced when grown in a sunnier spot. These colourful canes form a dense clump and are clothed in slender green leaves, which are retained throughout the year. The dense, upright growth makes this particularly good for hedging or narrow borders. Garden care: Do not allow to dry out while the plant is getting established.
