Borinda nujianensis

Height: 15? feet,
Diameter: 3/4 inch inch
Hardiness: 15F
Recommended for USDA zone 8b through 9, not for climates with high heat and humidity (southeastern states).

This Borinda of moderate hardiness, nujiangensis has some of the most slender leaves of any Borinda.  The new shoots have beautiful reddish marbled sheathes. We have had it in the ground for a little over 3 years. Last winter when we dropped down to 12F, this plant lost most of its leaves, but the canes appear to still be alive. We are still learning its size and hardiness. Only Borinda angustissima has smaller leaves, but nujiangensis has longer, more slender leaves.
