Fargesia scabrida


Fargesia Similaris KR 4175


A hardy, non-running bamboo collected by Keith Rushforth in Yunnan at Zhongdian to the Yangtze and introduced into the UK via Ness Botanic Gardens.

Very attractive fresh green foliage and a dense, fairly upright or slightly arching habit. Leaves are approximately 9cm long  x 1cm in width.

Culms are initially glaucous, later becoming green and should reach a height of around 3 to 5m.

Found at 3225m and is believed to have tolerated at least  -15C.

A very worthwhile introduction but has been slow to propagate and is ulikely to be avaiable until 2012.
