Borinda fungosa was introduced as seed from China in 1993 as a Fargesia. It is larger and more vigorous than most Fargesias. The culms turn a burgundy-red when exposed to morning sun. It has larger leaves than most of our Fargesias and will prosper in milder parts of the Pacific Northwest and California if planted in partial shade. In the winter of 2003/2004 we had an early heavy frost here in Portland, OR that damaged new culms, but all plants have recovered fully.  It has a beautiful leaf pattern, and forms a full, lush screen in the right environment.
