Eventual Plant Size


Fargesia robusta ‘Campbell’ is one of the most Upright Bamboos, with lovely dull green straight canes, also this Fargesia Bamboo is better suited for a sunny location in the garden, it makes an excellent hedge, with a slightly smaller leave than straight robusta. The emerging culms are a startling green and show up well against the white culm sheaths in the spring. This bamboo will reach up to 3.5 to 4 metres in height and is a well behaved Clump Forming Bamboo which will not mind growing in a shady spot either. Quite rare, but very desirable!

    I bought one in a 5l pot. It is absolutely stunning. Really well packaged and taller than I imagined which is great. Thanks. Will definitely buy another type soon.

    Beautiful bamboo, even nicer than the pictures show. I bought 3 of the 10ltr canes & I’m absolutely delighted, as they’ve grown so much since they arrived about 6 weeks ago. The nursery were really helpful, answering all my queries before I purchased, so am very impressed. I would 100% recommend them.

    We bought a few plants to create a 9ft wide screen nearly 3 years ago. These plants are now superb and are not invasive, but they have thickened out. They are a delight all year round and we have provided no maintenance at all. They are simply beautiful.

    Delighted with the quality, box was a little bit bashed up when it arrived but this was probably down to the courier and not the sender, plants are absolutely fine and I’m very happy with them.

    Plants arrived swiftly however I was initially concerned as a lot of the canes had been wrapped in cling film and bent over, upon contacting the seller I was assured the canes would bend back with a little encouragement and this was due to the height restrictions set by their courier the other option was to cut the canes out completely so Im pleased they didnt in the end. Plants look great and ended up being larger than described. Id happily buy from this seller again based on this purchase.
