Care & Size Guidance

Fargesia demissa ‘Gerry’ is an ideal plant for semi-shaded gardens, sheltered from afternoon sun and strong winds. Even though is a bamboo, it does not tolerate high heat and humidity. The leaves curl in strong sunlight for protection, but otherwise have a lush blue/green colour and airy arrangement.

Plant in moist soils with very good drainage in partial shade.

Feeding Fargesia plants

All bamboo plants are heavy feeders and periodic application of fertiliser is highly recommended to keep the plants thriving.

Feed with slow release bamboo fertiliser twice a year to encourage strong healthy plants.
