This new Fargesia is known and loved for the intense red colour of the new shoots that age to a mellow yellow . Unlike most other Fargesia, ‘Jiuzhaigou’ needs to be planted where it gets enough direct sun to turn red.
The leaves are very small; among the smallest of any Clumping Bamboo, and are reddish at first, fading to a light green.It is a light appearance due to the small leaves and this help it stay more upright. Strikingly beautiful in the Spring and Autumn. Grows to 10-12ft tall in the right conditions.
