Fargesia robusta 'Wolong' is another clumping gem that hails from the high mountains of Sichuan, China. Fargesia 'Wolong' boasts larger than normal, deer-resistant foliage than on typical Fargesia robusta, which consequently provides a more tropical feel in the garden. Despite the fact that Fargesia robusta 'Wolong' is often touted as heat-sensitive, we have not found this to be the case with our clump which received afternoon sun during our hottest summer on record with 95 days above 90 degrees. Expect 5-year-old clumps to hit 10' tall on their way to 15' at maturity.
