This form of jizuahaigou was collected from Jiuzhaigou Park in the Sichuan province of China. 'Jiuzhaigou' translated to english means the 'Valley Of Nine Villages', which was once a series of nine old Tibetan villages that once inhabited the valley.
Fargesia jiuzhaigou 'Deep Purple' exhibits stunning hues of purple. New culms emerge green but slowly age to varying tones of purple depending on the time of the season. The combination of old and new culms gives a colorful spectable purple shades. Together with the thin culms and small delicate leaves, this bamboo is one of the most elegant clumping bamboos in our private garden. If you love purple, this is the one.
Very cold hardy here in the Pacific Northwest and well suited for the outdoor garden. Although it can be grown in full sun, morning sun and afternoon shade will give the best coloration on the culms.
