Fargesia murielae ‘Luca’ is a low, slowly spreading, evergreen bamboo that makes an ideal ground cover in inhospitable situations – it is not invasive. Reaching no more than 50cm in height, ‘Luca’ develops a crowded mass of slender woody canes that are green at first and then become rather yellowish.
How to care
- Pruning Remove weak, dead, damaged or spindly stems in spring and thin to show off stems to best effect. Cut out any flowering shoots promptly to discourage more from forming – see bamboo cultivation.
- Pests Slugs may damage new shoots.
- Diseases Generally disease free.
