This high elevation Chinese bamboo has very long internodes and thick culms. The culms
are very erect and also very tolerant of wind, making this bamboo an excellent
wind break. The
leaves are thick, long, and broad.
The culm sheaths are
but fall off
eventually. Bashania fargesii is a vigorous runner, even in heavy Oregon
clay soil. We consider it to have one of the fastest spreading rhizomes of any bamboo (be
careful where you plant it!). Excellent for erosion control.
