Fargesia nitida 'Volcano' is a captivating bamboo species renowned for its stunning ornamental qualities and hardiness. 

The 'Volcano' cultivar distinguishes itself with its compact and upright growth habit, making it an excellent choice for smaller garden spaces or container cultivation. Its slender, arching canes emerge in dense clumps, creating a striking vertical presence in the landscape. These canes are adorned with lush, dark green foliage that maintains its colour throughout the year, providing year-round interest.

One of the most enchanting features of Fargesia nitida 'Volcano' is its resilience to harsh conditions. Unlike many bamboo species, 'Volcano' thrives in partial shade, making it an ideal option for gardens with limited sunlight. It is also exceptionally cold hardy, capable of withstanding temperatures as low as -20°C (-4°F), making it suitable for cultivation in temperate climates.

In addition to its aesthetic appeal and hardiness, 'Volcano' bamboo offers practical benefits to the garden ecosystem. Its dense foliage provides shelter and foraging opportunities for small wildlife, while its clumping growth habit helps prevent invasive spread, making it a low-maintenance and environmentally friendly landscaping choice.

Caring for Fargesia nitida 'Volcano' is relatively straightforward. It prefers moist, well-drained soil and benefits from occasional watering during dry periods, particularly in the first few years after planting. Regular pruning can help maintain its desired shape and prevent overcrowding, although this bamboo typically requires minimal maintenance compared to other species.

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).
