Bamboo – Fargesia scabrida Asian Wonder

We planted a small pot of Fargesia scabrida Asian Wonder in the back patch early May 2020.  In a few years we should be able to harvest our own bamboo stakes.  (We live, as always, in hope!)

  • Origin: China
  • Mature Height: 3-4 metres
  • Hardiness: -20 degrees celcius; Zone 6b
  • Exposure: Sun or Light Shade
  • Use: Solitary Speciman, containers

The Fargesia Scabrida ‘Asian Wonder’ is a clumping, non-invasion bamboo with graceful, highly decorative narrow leaves.  The new culms appear purple, maturing to an olive green colour with orange culm sheaths.

This is an excellent bamboo for containers and rarely grows over 3 metres.

It is tolerant of shade and will make a good clumper planted out in the garden.
