Lubera stops plant deliveries to the UK
Due to Brexit, we are not able to deliver to the UK. We are working on a solution on how we can continue to bring a wide range of Lubera plants to the UK and directly to our customers' homes in the future. However, such a solution will not be available before 2022 or 2023.

Medium high bamboo, 2-3 m

For the garden, bamboo with its many varieties is one of the best known ornamental grasses. But still not all hobby gardeners know that there are two fundamentally different groups of bamboo: the Phyllostachys group, which usually grow very strongly, and the Fargesia group, which is available in more compact to medium growth forms. Check out the medium high bamboo plants in our assortment!

The Fargesia group offers many varieties with different growth heights - from 30 cm maximum height up to high growing varieties. Especially popular are the medium high bamboo plants, which belong to the genus Fargesia. 



Fargesia from the Lubera garden shop


The medium high bamboo plant Fargesia representatives look beautiful in an individual position but are also suitable for group planting or for pots.

We would like to recommend two varieties from our assortment:

Bamboo 'Volcano' (Fargesia nitida) and Bamboo 'Simba' (Fargesia murielae).


With Fargesia bamboo no rhizome barrier is necessary


When choosing and buying a medium high Fargesia variety, you have the advantage that it grows compact and clump-like, so you don't have to bother with a root barrier.




All bamboos offered in our Lubera garden shop are hardy. Nevertheless, there are some special care tips that are worth noting, so that the overwintering of bamboo plants will be successful for you.

Whether hardy or not, until the young bamboo plant has adapted to its new location, it should be given winter protection for the first two years. Cover the ground with straw, reed mats or fleece. To achieve the specified winter hardiness, the bamboo plants must first take root well in the new location. Also, pack the bamboo plant itself, but please do so only when it actually gets -10°C and colder during the day. And then do not forget to take off the fleece again. Otherwise, the bamboo plants will not get air and can therefore rot.

For bamboo that is kept in pots, winter protection is always recommended. Wrap the pot and, on particularly cold days, the plants themselves with fleece or bubble wrap and place them against the wall of the house and in the shade to keep out the direct sunlight.

Bamboo plants need water even in the winter. Therefore, please water them on frost-free days a little, but regularly. Make sure that there is no waterlogging in the pots. The bamboo plants do not need to be fertilised during the winter dormancy period.
