This new generation selection of the popular clumping Fargesia nitida hails from the World Heritage Preserve of Jiuzhaigou in China's horticulturally rich Sichuan Province. Fargesia 'Jiuzhaigou' (pronounced "zhu-zhi-go") has much better heat tolerance than past selections of Fargesia nitida we've trialed. Fargesia nitida 'Jiuzhaigou' makes a 10' tall clumper with small, narrow green leaves adorning the green canes which turn a beautiful cinnamon red in their second season...brighter in better light. As the deer-resistant clumps age, the older canes eventually turn to yellow. Fargesia nitida 'Jiuzhaigou' is a stunning new bamboo that we are thrilled to make available.
