Of the jiuzhaigou family, jiuzhaigou '4' exhibits the darkest culms turning almost dark purple. Culms of this particular cultivar tend to grow in a more tighter clumping habit. More direct sun exposure makes the canes darker. Similar to the other cultivars, jiuzhaigou ‘4’ also has thin canes and small delicate leaves. A beautiful specimen for those seeking a smaller bamboo with almost black canes.
Very cold hardy here in the Pacific Northwest and well suited for the outdoor garden. A rare bamboo and fairly new cultivar, the maximium height is still unknown.
