Fargesia robusta, as the species name implies, is one of the more robust growing Fargesia bamboos. Although variable it is typically upright and tall, withstanding more exposure than many and has a tight, non-invasive clumping habit. It is one of the earliest bamboos to break soil in spring - an event much heralded in bamboo growing circles! - and the persistent white culm sheaths contrast beautifully with the dark green canes to give what is often described as a chequerboard effect. The form 'Campbell' is particularly upright and robust in character - suited perfectly to screening and hedging.

Vouchers and small boxes can be posted through the letterbox, provided there is unrestricted access to it.
Bamboos can be grown almost anywhere, but avoid excessively windy locations. Many can be grown in sun or shade (sun is usually best for colour).Bamboos are generally shallow rooted and prefer a rich, moisture retentive, organic soil.
Before planting out, the roots should be soaked in water for some time, and after planting it is important that the plant is watered well.
Hardy species of bamboo which were grown in pots can be planted anytime during the year, except in frozen ground.
<p>Very disappointed when the Robusta arrived. It was wrapped in cling film and parcel tape at the base which damaged the new shoots. Overall, the bamboo was in poor condition - very spindly and yellow/pale green leaves. I did write to complain but no reply.</p><p style="margin-left:30px;"><strong style="color:#3f48cc;">Palm Centre Reply</strong><span style="color:#3f48cc;">: We're so sorry to hear you're not happy with your bamboo. We can't find your email anywhere I'm afraid, you can call us anytime so we can discuss further. The cling film is a standard packaging and the tape at the base is to secure the cling film to the pot. The Fargesia rufa Campbell loose leaves over winter and the ones remaining could be turning yellow as the bamboo is most of the time pot bound. Once repotted or planted in the ground it will establish really well fast and shoot new growth.</span></p>
I was pleased to find this bamboo available in midsummer, as many nurseries were out of stock. Service was friendly, with the company making a phone call to check collection arrangements. The 9.5 litre pot gave a mature plant with the tallest stems reaching 165 cm - quite a bit taller than promised.
