Fargesia frigida KR4059

Borinda lushuiensis
(syn. B. edulis  Yunnan 4)

 

Introduced from Yunnan in the 1990's. A vigorous, non-running species with a dense, upright habit. 

 Expected to be  approximately 5 to 8m but has reached 12m in Cornwall.

Powder blue culms with reddish brown sheaths. Similar in appearance to Borinda albocera.

A superb specimen plant for the SW or other areas with little frost.

Needs a very sheltered position and is best in light shade.

As yet it is not known to have tolerated  much less than -8C.and for this reason propagation has been largely discontinued.
