 Council and creation of a bamboo hedge tracing, non-invasive.haie de fargesia robusta


For the whole of the population when it comes to bamboo, thoughtimmediately to:


"Oh no it's worse that the weed"


"you plant it and after you're everywhere".


Actually a large part of the varieties of bamboo,
"Phyllostachys, Indocalamus, Sasa, Sasaella, etc." is said to be ' leptomorphe '
It means creeping or invasive
the plant produces, and Eastern.
The rizhome is as a root of the size of a cane or 'thatch' bamboo which tends to run in your garden.
Rizhome evolved generally surface or up to 60cm maximum depth, it created the buds which will later give a cane, unlike what can be read here and there, bamboo suckering does not mean non-tracant bamboo, here is the definition of clustered:
CespiteUX:  told of a plant is Evergreen when it does is spread not on the surface, it to a narrow development.

FARGESIA, Drepanostachyum and Thamnocalamus, Yushania. produce a root system completely 'pachymorphe' that is to say without rizhome.

On the other hand there are three varieties which are very clustered, but a leptomorphe system is not excluded. These are the family of the BORINDA, the THAMNOCALAMUS and the CHUSQUEA.
Chusquea in many a root system pachymorphe but the spacing between the culms can be important, we then say that the development of this bamboo can be especially important for Chusquea 'Gigantea'.


Advantage to create a hedge of bamboos in FARGESIA:





  • the purchase of the plants in container 25Lts or more.
  • In the same container a FARGESIA cost a bit more expensive than a Phyllostachys "Except in our BOUTIQUE", price remains to be seen if one buys the B.A.R for a hedge of bamboo tracing.


'' Development means the adult area of the plant on the ground measured over a period of 10 years. ,,
