Fargesia robusta

Fargesia robusta maintained as a hedge in west Olympia

Fargesia robusta  is a versatile clumping bamboo which is one of the larger, more vigorous and most sun-tolerant of the Fargesias.  It has an upright habit, reaches about 20’ in height, with a culm diameter of 1”, and thrives in slightly acid, rich, organic soils, with summer irrigation, and is cold hardy to about 0 degrees F.  Our examples have grown equally well with several hours of full afternoon sun, or in nearly full shade (I wouldn’t recommend this plant for areas receiving full sun with reflected heat).  This is a great plant for a single specimen used in a hedge or screen, or in a container in a shadier area.
