Fargesia denudata ‘Lancaster 1’



Eventual Plant Size


Fargesia denudata is a fabulous, clump-forming bamboo. This fargesia has characteristic arching, pale green turning to olive green canes and masses of tiny, fresh green leaves. The new canes emerge with a powdery grey bloom and make a spectacular statement in the garden. It will not grow huge and is happy in a shady position in most soils.

An easy bamboo to grow. Still a rare plant probably because it is so clump forming and therefore slow to propagate, which is a shame because it should be seen more often.
