Bamboo Fargesia Jiuzhaigou 1. 90 Litre Pot Extra Bushy: Large bushy plants in 70 litre pots with a choice of 150/175 or 175/200cm. Fargesia Bamboo at this size are quite a rarity. They are a great choice for an instant impact non-invasive super decorative Bamboo. Often referred to simply as Jiu or Red Dragon Bamboo in my opinion they make a great choice for a very large pot or a stand-alone specimen, they may also be used in this case as an instant informal hedge. Young culms appear deep green and age to orange/brown before maturing to red. Foliage is mid to dark green and relatively short making for a bushy plant. 

Jiuzhaigou '1' are a highly adaptable Fargesia. For best results plant in any free draining soil damp soil. In early spring feed with a liquid food with a high nitrogen content, this will help promote new growth and give the plant a boost after the dormant period. In summer a slow release fertiliser is preferable. As with most plants, especially Bamboo always ensure the plant has an adequate water supply especially when planted in a container. This Bamboo requires no special treatment or requirements during the winter months

Planting Position:For best results plant in a bright sunny spot, will also be happy in light shaded areas. Preferably away from exposed windy sites.

Soil: A highly adaptable plant for all soil types, however it is not suited to wet, boggy ground.

Suitable for container planting: Yes a perfect choice for containers, will need repotting approximately every 2 years into larger pots and fresh compost.

Eventual height and spread: Upto 3 metres high with a 2 metre spread.

Growth speed: Relatively quick.

Growth habit: Upright canes with a cascading foliage

Flowering Period: Not Applicable.

Pruning: Not Necessary

Foliage: Narrow pale green leaves on thin reddish canes.

Evergreen: Yes, but like most Bamboo Fargesia, Jiuzhaigou will shed some older foliage in late Autumn through to early Winter, this is not a cause for concern and is perfectly normal, they will soon be replaced when the temperatures start to rise in spring.

Hardiness: Whole of the Uk to -20

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 small, urban spaces.
