    Fargesia murieliae is an extremely cold hardy clumping bamboo, and is an excellant choice to try if you are wondering if bamboo will grow in your area. It is also known as Unbrella Bamboo because of the graceful way that its culms arch outwards like an umbrella. Murealiae grows at elevations above 10 000 feet in China, where it is a common food for the Panda Bear. When planted on 1 - 2.5 meter centers, Fargesia murieliae grows into a lush privacy wall.

    Fountain bamboo is similar to Fargesia murielae except it has darker culms. The culms are a dark mahogany color with a bluish white powder when young. This is a great bamboo for the lazy gardener. It is tough, beautiful and clumping. Like Murielae, Nitida flowers every 120 years or so and recently flowered so it should be another 100 or so years before it flowers again.
