Fargesia nitida or otherwise known as Blue Fountain Bamboo. An outstanding ornamental non-invasive bamboo with outward arching slender branches and dark purplish canes that are covered with a bluish-white powder. This bamboo in it's native high mountain habitat grows at elevations over 8,000 feet and is extremely hardy to -20F degrees. The rich green leaves are delicate, and very attractive. Fargesia nitida is a thin bamboo with a very vertical visual pattern. The foliage seems to float around the whip-like culms. A dainty and graceful bamboo that is perfect for the shad yarea of the garden. Vase shaped and gently arching over at the top from the mass of foliage. It makes an excellent thick hedge or screen. Fargesia nitida prefers rich well drained soil and partial to full shade to perform its best. Like most Fargesias, some protection from the hot afternoon sun is advisable but not required.
