A medium sized clumping bamboo with thick foliage with a similar appearance and growth habit as Fargesia nitida. This is perhaps the hardiest of any bamboo species to about -25F, allowing this species to grow in many areas as far north as Canada and even in western Alaska. Additionally, this was one of the first clumping bamboos to be introduced to the United States.


One of the most attractive aspects of Fargesia murielae is its growth habit - it is one of the tightest packed clumpers we've grown, with hundreds of canes growing from a small area. However, as the canes lean out at the edges of the grove and lean back to the ground, it creates a solid edge of foliage and usually avoids the "V" shape of other clumping bamboo, making it one of the best choices for a solid hedge. For comparison, a row of "V" shaped plants allows gaps between the bases of each plant (VVVVVVV) where Fargesia murielae is more solid, like a "U" (UUUUUUU). However, those wishing for a more upright grove are also in luck with this species, as the new growth is very upright and doesn't begin to lean over until the weight of the next season's leaves weigh the canes down. Trimming the top 20% of the leaning canes in June will send them springing back upright, a process that takes about five to ten minutes per year. This is also the case with Fargesia nitida.

In its native range in China, Fargesia murielae is one of the highest elevation bamboos. Although this provides its exceptional cold hardiness, it is adapted to the cooler and low humidity environment of the mountains. With afternoon shade and ample water, our plants thrive just fine even though we have frequent summer heat waves of 100+ degrees. When planted in full sun in our climate, the branches will have significant leaf damage and loss throughout July and August.

Fargesia murielae flowered extensively throughout the 1990's, so almost every plant in the United States is of the new generation and is not in danger of flowing for probably a hundred years or so. Many of the seedlings are still being identified as new varieties based on differences in habit, color, or general appearance, and so over time more named varieties will become available.

How Your Plants Are Packaged And Shipped


Most plants are shipped wrapped in newspaper, then moistened. Large bundles of plants can be shipped in a single long box.
Some plants, usually bamboo, are shipped in their container while others have their roots washed of soil and wrapped in damp paper and plastic. Most plant varieties can be shipped year-round, but sometimes certain plant species or large sizes do best when shipped dormant. You can order these to reserve yours during the summer and then they will be shipped in November when they are ready to go.

Your plants are placed in tight fitting boxes and strapped to the box so they don't move around and sustain damage. These are 3' tall Coast Redwoods.

Here's Why You Get The Best Plants From Us

Outdoor Grown Plants Are Tough
These plants have been grown outside and are far tougher than greenhouse-grown plants, which is the typical growing method of many other online sellers. When plants spend their live outsides they are already used to extreme temperature, humidity, and light fluctuations and have been hardened off against these conditions from day one. Tough plants are much better prepared for planting out and will perform far better in your landscape.

No Risk Ordering
Your plants are fully guaranteed to arrive safely or they will be replaced, no hassles. Just send us an email at info@lebeaubamboo.com for easy plant help. They are also guaranteed to be fully up to size - we only ship plants that have fully filled out their container. Often, online sellers ship plants that are 3.5 inch or quart sized but the most common size plants we ship are twice as big, fully filling out one gallon containers.

Year Round Shipping
By growing in containers rather than the field, shipping of one and two gallon plants is available within 1-3 days of ordering all year long for most plant varieties. Plus, container growing has the added benefit of low root disturbance, especially compared to typical bare root plants, and ensures much faster establishment in your landscape. Holding your order and shipping dormant in the spring or fall is also available which offers reduced shipping rates and allows for shipping of large two and five gallon plants up to 60 inches tall.
