The Fargesia Asian Wonder is the only red bamboo in the world. This Fargesia is a truly exclusive bamboo species that is rarely found in stores. The red color comes after 2/3 years. The stems turn red from direct sunlight, so the more sunlight, the redder the stems. The stems can be 2cm in diameter after several years. In addition to its red stems, the Fargesia has beautiful bright green leaves. This Fargesia grows as a compact shrub, with many stems close together and can reach 3 to 4 meters in height. The stems grow straight up and will droop slightly at the top. Besides the fact that this species does not proliferate, it is also hardy to -18 degrees Celsius!
Fargesia Asian wonder is evergreen, hardy, and non-spreading. The plant desires a place in the sun or semi-shade. In summer and on hot days this plant needs quite a bit of water. A planting distance of 40-60cm is advised if the plant is placed in the open ground.
On delivery, the plants have a height of 25-40cm (measured incl. pot). The plants are delivered in pots with a diameter of 13cm.
