Additional Information About Fargesia Nitida Blue Fountain Clumping Bamboo


Fargesia nitida, commonly called "Blue Fountain Bamboo," is an elegant, cold hardy bamboo (to -20F) that forms a striking, upright clump of dark purplish and blue-grey canes supporting a fountain shaped canopy of arching branches with slender, dark green leaves, hence the name "Blue Fountain Bamboo." Great bamboo for a specimen planting or screen. Planting locations in hot afternoon sunlight exposure should be avoided in climate zones 7. Climate zone 5, 6 and 7.

Fargesia nitida is a clumping bamboo, which means it doesn't spread. That being said, the clump does gradually expand in size, much like many ornamental grasses.
