Fargesia sp. 'Jiuzhaigou' II
                  pronounced "JU-ZIE-GO"

Height: 12 to 14(?) feet
Diameter: 0.75 inch
Hardiness: -20
F
USDA zone 5 through 9, not for climates with high heat and humidity (southeastern states).

The second form of Jiuzhaigou, collected as a seedling from Jiuzhaigou Park in Sichuan China by M. Laferrere of France. It is very similar to Jiuzhaigou I, but has slightly larger canes and leaves with a more "open" clump habit (more space between each culm), but is not as brightly colored. The branches radiate from the culm at a 45 angle, as opposed to Jiuzhaigou I, which tends to radiate at 90. See comparison at bottom of page. The branches are also longer. One of the most cold hardy bamboos available.
