Fargesia frigida KR4059
(syn. Fargesia frigidorum or Borinda frigidorum)
A very hardy, non-running, bamboo collected by Keith Rushforth and introduced via Ness Botanic Garden.
Plentiful upright canes, forming a dense, upright clump about 8ft. (3m) high or more.
Its dense upright habit and mature height of 8/11ft. (3/3.5m) would make it ideal as an easily managed screen except for the loss of foliage in winter..
Small, bright green leaves.
Has tolerated -23C.
The culms are thin and slightly arching, becoming yellowish with age. They initially have a blueish waxy bloom and the persistent culm sheaths are tinted with red.
Probably best in full sun.
The very fresh green spring foliage and rounded habit of this species make it a very desirable specimen plant with potential for screening in cases where evergreen foliage is not essential..
