A new introduction, this compact, dwarfing bamboo, produces masses of new culms (as the canes are called), which emerge a striking powder-blue before turning darker as they mature. A beautiful addition to your garden and bred specifically to be non-invasive and to thrive in shadier conditions.
Bamboos have developed a reputation for thuggish behaviour, but fear not, this newly introduced bamboo is a very well-behaved garden resident. Fargesias do not develop extensive underground rhizomes, but instead form neat, manageable clumps, and Fargesia 'Blue Dragon' is relatively shorter with many smaller canes and a much more refined appearance.
Spectacular in big pots on the patio, and an ideal bamboo for small gardens, the slender, evergreen canes of this clumping Umbrella Bamboo form a beautiful, multi-tonal plant for year-round interest and colour.
Fully winter hardy Blue Dragon' is really easy to grow, just don't let it dry out in hot, dry summers - what could be simpler?
Supplied in a 5L pot, 1.5m tall (inc. pot), ready to pot on into a larger container or plant out, Blue Dragon is great in a large pot or in the garden, where it can even be grown as a dense and easy-care, non-trim hedge, reaching 4mor so over many years.
