Bamboo - Umbrella

Umbrella Bamboo

Umbrella Bamboo has an elegant, weeping habit ideal for a more exotic hedging aesthetic. This exotic evegreen hedging plant is the perfect solution to adding to your garden for a contemporary look. 

Bamboo makes the perfect hedging plant alternative, not only is it evergreen and fast growing it is also low maintenance so you can leave it to grow freely and create that contemporary style you are looking for. Umbrella Bamboo has all the features of green , golden and black bamboo but with a more ‘bushy’ look which makes this an excellent screening hedging plant.  Fargesia murielae 'Jumbo' has brightly coloured green stems that turn yellow as they mature which stand out amongst the bright green foliage. Umbrella Bamboo is very similar to Green Bamboo and it will look fresh all year round but it will grow to twice the height.  

Umbrella Bamboo is classed as low maintenance, but it can take a year or two to fully settle and they need to be watered well until they are established. Bamboo can be invasive so if you do not want your bamboo to get too out of control, you can plant bamboo underground in pots (twice their root size) to contain their height and growth spread.

Planting bamboo in a slightly dry soil will also slow down their growth rate, which can reach up to 6m, as this wouldn’t be their first choice in soil choice. To achieve a fully growing bamboo hedge, plant them slightly below ground level. They prefer sun or semi shade and will grow by 60/90cm pa.
