FUSCA

THREE STOREY

SCREENING BAMBOO

(Bambusa textilis 'Fusca')

Fusca is the 'bigger brother' to the best selling Gracilis bamboo. Fusca is the prettiest LARGE screening bamboo, screening up to three storeys high.

It has an upright growth habit (most bamboos fan out wide) with attractive bushy green foliage. The natural footprint size of the clump is 2mtrs however this species could be grown in narrower garden beds down to 1mtr, but wouldn't quite get as tall. For very narrow garden beds, Gracilis is the best choice. Fusca will solve most height privacy issues fast!

 

Clumping bamboo grow circular, so plant them the same distance apart as the width you have available. Eg. if your planting trench is 2mtrs wide, you would plant them 2mtrs apart to form a dense screen. The narrower the space, the closer you plant the bamboo together. For more information, talk to one of our helpful and knowledgable staff members for professional advice on your garden circumstances. Different circumstances have different solutions!

Fusca is extremely quick growing and can be fully grown within 2-3 years, or quicker if you purchase more established sizes! Fusca is low maintenance & drought tolerant once established.

Follow our bamboo planting guide (provided with your purchase) to achieve the best results. The guides are helpful and easy to follow, and assist you in achieving the best results in the shortest amount of time. Most of the effort in growing your bamboos is preparation and the first few months after planting.

The approximate size of bamboo is only a guide. Plant measurements are taken from the bottom of the pot. 

The sizing of plants does vary, particularly through different seasons of the year.

The most valuable part of the bamboo is the rootball size within the pots, which produces incredibly fast growth once planted.
