Bamboo Fargesia 'Jiuzhaigou 1' 18 Litre: Jiu for short or Red Panda Bamboo is a lovely addition to the Fargesia collection. The young green culms turn orange-brown in the early spring gradually becoming reddish. The contrast between the small narrow leaves and the coloured culms make this a highly ornamental plant, its erect habit makes it very suitable for informal hedges.

From a gardeners perspective, all forms of 'Jiuzhaigou' generally have smaller more delicate leaves than other fargesia species and in some cases more vivid and varied colour tones the brilliant red tones of Jiu '1' are most evident in the spring and Autumn. They show their best characteristics when grown in an area with morning sun for 2-4 hours, and shade for the hottest part of the day. Loamy, well draining soil is also important. 'Jiuzhaigou' will naturally shed about 30% of its foliage in late Autumn, to prepare for the winter. Whilst still dense enough to act as a screen, our personal opinion is 'Jiuzhaigou' works best in the landscape as a solitary specimen, either in the pot or ground. Try not to place it in close proximity to other tall, bushy plants. Due to their hardiness and upright form, they also make excellent container specimens. They are truly beautiful plants, with an airy, delicate leaf pattern and surprising colour changes throughout the different seasons. Easy to maintain and most garden worthy, even for smallurban spaces.

What to expect: Your plant will arrive in well esatblished into an 18L pot with an actual plant height of 120/140cm and bushy. 

Jiuzhaigou '1' are a highly adaptable Fargesia. For best results plant in any free draining soil damp soil.
