Fargesia ‘Jiuzhaigou’ (or: glossy bamboo ‘Jiuzhaigou’ ) is an evergreen variety of bamboo that does not spread wildly. This kind of bamboo has narrow, fresh green leaves. Gloss bamboo ‘Jiuzhaigou’ is ideal for hedging, but can also be planted in groups or solitary. The green leaves remain on the plant over the winter, but the leaves usually roll up under adverse conditions with drought, severe frost or too much sun. Gloss bamboo ‘Jiuzhaigou’ has gorgeous, purple-red stems and a beautiful golden yellow autumn color. In addition, this variety is very hardy.

Since this species does not spread wild or too violent, you do not need a root block. Glossy Bamboo ‘Jiuzhaigou’ is a bushy variety of bamboo that thrives in all soil types. This variety grows nicely in both sun and semi-shade. Gloss bamboo ‘Jiuzhaigou’ grows up to 300 cm high.
