Fargesia bamboos do not require a rhizome barrier
Most bamboo species form underground rhizomes with which they spread quickly. Before you buy such a bamboo, you should remember to install a root or rhizome barrier before planting the bamboo. This is the only way to prevent the root sprouts from spreading to unwanted areas of the garden and displacing neighbouring planting.
Unlike many other bamboo species, Fargesia robusta Campbell does not form root runners. Instead, it grows in clumps. An elaborate rhizome barrier is therefore not necessary when you buy this bamboo.

It is best to plant the Fargesia robusta Campbell in a completely sunny or semi-shady location in a moist and compost-rich soil. If the Fargesia robusta Campbell rolls up its leaves, this is an indication that it needs water. This can happen in summer, but also in winter.

Planting bamboo - note the flowers
Most bamboo species rarely flower. If a bamboo blossom occurs, the bamboo dies after the bamboo blossom and there is a massive decline of the affected bamboo species. Since bamboo blossom is rare, a possible blossom can be predicted long in advance for most species. In the near future, a bamboo flower is not to be expected with the Fargesia robusta Campbell variety. You will therefore enjoy your umbrella bamboo for a long time.
