Fargesia March Promotion
Van Vliet New Plants have chosen their Fargesia range of bamboo for their March promotion.
Fargesia murieliae 'Luca' (pbr)
Fargesia murieliae 'Luca' (below) is an interesting novelty in the Bamboo assortment. This variety is a real dwarf. It has an almost round shape an only reaches a height of 40 to 50cm at a width of about 1m.
'Luca' is a perfect species for small gardens, foundation planting and in pot on terrace or balcony. 'Luca' does not build rhizomes and can therefore be perfectly planted. In addition, the plant is hardy and requires little or no maintenance.
Fargesia murieliae 'Elias' (pbr)
Fargesia murieliae 'Elias' (top right) is a refreshing new bamboo which does not invade your garden. Instead it is used for its compact size and its unique low growth habit. 'Elias' originated from seed of the Fargesia murieliae and was selected by Frank Schnupper for its compact growth.
Just like his little brother 'Luca', 'Elias' is just as compact and can grow into a shrub of 50 to 60cm high and one meter wide.
Fargesia murieliae ‘Lolliloops
Fargesia murieliae 'Lolliloops' (above) has a compact growth and grows to a maximum height of 150cm. The branches hang out widely. 'Lolliloops' is hardy up to appr. -25.
This beautiful asset can be used for hedging or solitaire. With its compactness it is especially suited for smaller gardens, balcony or terrace. The plant grows well in full sun as well in semi shade.
