This rare form of Jiuzhaigou was collected as a seedling from Jiuzhaigou Park in northern Sichuan China by a Swiss bamboo collector and later imported to the United States from Europe. It is similar to Jiuzhaigou I, but with more of a brick red color, and even finer foliage. It acquires a beautiful cherry red coloration in the spring and fall. We have several available for sale but haven't grown it in the ground long enough to determine the height and potential in the Pacific Northwest. It is equally hardy as other Jiuzhaigou and safe from flowering for a very long time. It has great potential, especially if it turns out to be more robust than the original Jiuzhaigou I.
