Fargesia denudata

Height: 15 feet, usually 10 feet
Diameter: 0.5 inch
Hardiness: -10 F
USDA zone 5 through 9, not for climates with high heat and humidity (Southeastern states).

Similar to Fargesia murielae in form and color, F. denudata has shorter branches and smaller leaves, which cause the gracefully arching canes to stand out individually. Although not as hardy as F. murielae, it is hardy to -10F.  Unlike F. murielae and F. nitida, it does not have leaves that yellow and drop in the fall, making it a greener plant through the winter. 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.
