Asian Wonder is a highly ornamental garden bamboo.
A medium-sized bamboo with attractive arching canes and masses of soft green leaves.
Recently introduced from China, this Bamboo is fast becoming one of our most popular varieties thanks to it's graceful appearance with arching canes, and unusual colouration. Unlike most other Fargesia bamboos, the new canes of this clumping type emerge somewhere between orange-red and crimson-plum in colour, maturing to olive green. This adds an extra dimension of interest compared to the standard varieties, and it can be used in exactly the same ways.
Excellent in a container as a solitary plant, used as a hedge or screen, planted in groups as a feature, this list of options goes on. We think it look particularly good near water or used in a garden with a far eastern theme, combined with Japanese Maples for example.
Perhaps simply enjoy as an attractive pot plant on the patio, relaxing as you hear the breeze rustle through the foliage on warm summer evenings as you sit enjoying your own little tranquil oasis. Compact in habit, Fargesia Asian Wonder really does make it an ideal exotic specimen or container plant for small gardens.
Supplied in approx. 5 litre containers at up to around 100-120cms tall inclusive.
What the experts say. . . .
"Fargesia is a small to medium sized bamboo that unlike many varieties is also very well behaved in the garden. It will develop into a compact arching specimen usually between 1. 5 - 2m tall with masses of small leaves on top of the stems. Highly recommended, this is very easy to grow, fully hardy and tolerant of shade to. Simply plant in good, rich soil and keep well watered until established to achieve the best possible results. These beautiful bamboos also look especially good in a container. "
