Fargesia sp. 'Scabrida' 'Silver Dragon'

Silver Dragon

Max/Avg Height (ft.): 12-14 feet

Diameter: 0.5 to .75 inches

Hardiness: 0° F

USDA Zones: 7-9, not for climates with high heat and humidity (Southeastern states).

This new bamboo has all best characteristics of Fargesia sp. 'Scabrida'  but with a beautiful emergence of white leaf variegation in the spring shooting season from April through July.  Not heavily variegated, but does provide a nice frosting of bright foliage. By mid summer the white stripes fade to a darker bluish-green and look much like the parent Fargesia sp. 'Scabrida'. Discovered by Noah Bell at Bamboo Garden as a mutation of the original plant. Gradually, through careful cultivation, the striping stabilized and now we are offering this unique new cultivar to the ornamental market. A shade-loving clumping bamboo that provides exciting colors and graceful, airy leaf texture. New Release!
