Fargesia murieliae, Umbrella Bamboo, is an elegant hardy non-invasive clumping bamboo from Central China and a widespread area of Southeast Asia. It was first collected by Ernest Henry Wilson in 1907 and a specimen was introduced to the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew in 1913. It is named after his daughter, Muriel Primrose Wilson, who later married the American botanist, George Slate. Fargesia murieliae is one of the easiest and most reliable bamboos that are hardy in the UK. It is a well-behaved bamboo and doesn't spread by aggressive runners and has an attractive habit with tall thin culms and elegant foliage. Like most bamboos it appreciates plenty of water in the growing season and some shade from the burning rays of the midday sun.
