Fargesia jiuzhaigou '2'
- Height: 8 - 12 feet (2.4 - 4m)
- Max. Diameter: 1/2" (1.25cm)
- Hardiness: -29°C (-20°F)
- USDA Zone: 5a
- Light: Full Sun or Partial Shade
jiuzhaigou '2' exhibits a more open growth habit and vertical culms. Although not as brightly colored, with the right amount of shade and sunlight, the culms turn a rusty, burgundy color. Together with the thin culms and small delicate leaves, this bamboo is one of the most remarkable clumping bamboos.
Very cold hardy here in the Pacific Northwest and well suited for the outdoor garden or pot. Although it can be grown in full sun, morning sun and afternoon shade will give the best coloration on the culms.
