Fargesia nitida 'Pillar' is a popular cultivar of the clumping bamboo species Fargesia nitida. It is a visually striking plant with thin, upright stems that grow densely to form a tall, narrow column, making it an excellent choice for small gardens or urban spaces where space is limited.

The plant typically reaches a height of 10-12 feet with a spread of just 2-3 feet, and it maintains its narrow shape without requiring much pruning or maintenance. The stems are a beautiful shade of dark green and have a smooth, glossy texture. The foliage is lush and feathery, adding a touch of elegance to any landscape.

Fargesia nitida 'Pillar' is also an extremely hardy plant, able to withstand cold temperatures down to -20°F, making it an ideal choice for gardens in colder climates. It prefers partial to full shade and moist, well-draining soil, and it does not tolerate drought or extreme heat.

Overall, Fargesia nitida 'Pillar' is a beautiful and practical addition to any garden, providing year-round interest with its unique form and lush foliage.

Arundel Arboretum is a shrub and tree retail nursery with over 40 years of experience.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
