Fargesia nitida 'Jiuzhaigou' (Red Fountain Bamboo). This new bamboo was found in Jiuzhaigou Park in northern Sichuan China by R. Willumeit. What makes this bamboo unique is its dark red culms (stems) that appear the second year and the shorter growth habit. It is a clumping bamboo and extremely cold hardy. The canes will turn eventually yellow providing spectacular fall color. Use in a container or as a single specimen. Sold as a giant rooted plug (different than our other plants), this 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
