Fargesia 'Red Dragon'

The family of bamboo contains many different species that stand out because of their enormous variety : from dwarf to giant, from tropical to arctic, from plumb to knobby, …

Most people consider bamboo an invasive species, which is only partially correct :  Phyllostachys, Pleioblastus, Sasa, … are indeed a number of species that are largely on offer in the market and are invasive indeed (which does not need to be a problem when planted properly with root-barrier film)

However, Fargesia is a part of the bamboo family known and appreciated for its non-invasive properties. Therefore, it can be planted without extra measures to contain the roots. Moreover, these plants are evergreen and very easy in planting requirements, maintenance, health, … . 

They are known to have a positive impact on fine dust and noise. Animals like them for a lot of reasons. And most important of all, Fargesia are beautiful and come in various colours and shapes.

For decades, Oprins Plant has been specialising in this wonderful family of Bamboo. At the moment, we can provide plants in pot sizes ranging from 1L to 5LOur production techniques are based on tissue culture and are therefore unique. They result in plants with unmatched high and homogeneous quality which makes Oprins Plant the preferred supplier for other nurseries as well as retail. It also explains why we are able to keep growing year after year and how we became the most important supplier of Fargesia in Europe and beyond.
