Fargesia denudata is native to the Sichuan and Gansu provinces in China, growing at altitudes of 6000' to 10,000' (1800m to 3000m). It has short branches and small leaves, which makes the arching culms stand out individually.
Culms grow fairly upright at first but gracefully arches with the development of foliage, creating a water fountain like shape. Fargesia denudata does not shed leaves as much as the other Fargesia cultivars. This makes it a greener plant throughout winter.
A very impressive specimen for those seeking a bamboo with cascading green foliage. Grows best with protection from hot afternoon sun. Best planted as a standalone specimen to appreciate the graceful arching plumes of foliage.
Specimen size in 20gal pot.
