Fargesia ‘Jiuzhaigou’ was once a very rare bamboo, only recently discovered, fortunately now increasingly available it is proving a very popular bamboo. It is a clump-forming bamboo with a height of around 3 metres or so. Excellent when planted in semi-shade, where the mixture of green, purple and reddish canes are topped with dainty small dark green leaves. ‘Juizhaigou’ makes a superb specimen plant with it’s upright fountainous habit and can , if you have a sheltered shady position be planted as a hedge or screen to create a wonderful oriental or Japanese feel. Also suitable as a container plant, where it will make an excellent addition to the patio garden. Little maintenance required, except regular watering and feeding. A beautiful bamboo.
