SOLD OUT Umbrella Bamboo (Fargesia Murielae Smaragd) 7 seeds (#1902)

Approximately 7 seeds in the packet.
Fargesia murielae, the umbrella bamboo, is a large, clump-forming evergreen bamboo, closely resembling Fargesia nitida in the same genus, but with yellow canes.]
Considered one of the most beautiful bamboos in cultivation, Fargesia murielae, is native to the mountains of central China introduced by Ernest Henry Wilson in 1913 and named after his daughter. Its common name "umbrella bamboo" describes the graceful weeping habit of this plant. It grows at elevations of 1,981–3,048 m. It usually grows up to 4, sometimes 10 m, with a diameter of about 1-2 cm, and is hardy to −29C. Its USDA plant hardiness zone is 5 through 9 which is not desirable in climates with high heat and humidity such as southeastern states.
The leaves are longer than they are wide, have pointed ends, and are arranged singly along the leaf stem. It quickly forms a dense clump of closely spaced canes that are hard to see under a mass of foliage. The new shoots are light blue with tan culm sheaths, aging to a yellowish-green. Its growth and appearance is facilitated in an environment that receives afternoon shade and sunlight throughout the day.
Like all other fargesias, it does not have running rhizomes and needs no containment to prevent spread. It will maintain its green-pigmented foliage throughout the winter, though it will most likely shed a few leaves in late fall.
The Fargesia murielae species have been known to grow in regions of various climates that range from dry mountainsides to jungles, but in general prefer moderately fertile soil which is moist but well-drained and well aerated. They also favor a slightly acidic environment where they are best fit. This species is most common in southeast Asia, China, and Japan. Bamboo in the Orient is harvested for food, paper and timber. In other regions it is grown as an ornamental.
