Fargesia Robusta ‘Pingwu’ Bamboo
Fargesia robusta makes a narrow screen, being taller, more upright and more robust than some of the other Fargesia’s, particularly nitida and murielae. Ours are planted in the full sun, easily taking over 100º f. Dark green foliage and light green culms. New shoots are red. This bamboo adds great color to any garden.
High heat mixed with high humidity would probably be fatal for the Fargesia, so this might not be a plant for those in the southeast states. Try instead, any of our Bambusa multiplex or Thamnocalamus.
