Fargesia nitida (Blue Fountain Bamboo). What makes this bamboo unique is its dark purple-hued (stems) that appear the second year and the shorter growth habit. It is a clumping bamboo and extremely cold hardy, preferring low humidity. The canes have a bluish white powdery look when young. Use in a container or as a single specimen. Sold as a giant rooted plug (different than our other plants), that will take at least 3 years to reach mature size, but well worth the wait!
Fargesias form new canes in late summer that don't develop leaves until the following spring - do not cut these back, as they are important to the plant's growth. Propagation in mid-spring is easy, as long as the transplants stay continually moist until established.
Average water needs; water regularly; well-drained soil
