Fargesia denudata
Xian II

Height: 12 to 14 feet
Diameter: 0.5 inch
Hardiness: -10 F
USDA zone 6 through 9, not for climates with high heat and humidity (Southeastern states).

Similar shape and form to regular F. denudata and F. murielae but with longer branches that are burgundy to cherry red. Rare in the United States. Foliage tends to be more diffuse than regular F. denudata. Culms are olive green. Like other Fargesias, it is a clumping bamboo and is happy with some protection from hot afternoon sun. It is mostly suitable for areas that have the cooling in nighttime hours more common in Northern states, not in Southern states.
