Semiarundinaria fastuosa

An exceptionally impressive bamboo with substantial, upright, straight stems clustered with short branches,  giving a neat, columnar appearance. 

Culms are initially green, becoming purple or brown with age.

Normally spreads slowly, eventually forming a broad clump or a small to medium sized grove.

Very striking as a specimen plant  and highly effective as a tall screen.  Its spread can be  readily controlled by means of occasional spade work.

Very hardy and tolerant of a wide range of soils.

Has tolerated -25C.  

Ideal for a tall screen of 18ft. or more (6/8m).

Slow to propagate and consequently sometimes in short supply. 

RHS. Award.
