The Blue Fountain bamboo is a very nice, new introduction from the Western Chinese province of Sichuan.  This rare,  new cultivar of the Fargesia nitida 'Nanping'  grows very similar to the species, with the exceptions of an iridescent shine to the foliage and its more open growth habit.  The ‘Nanping will grow to about 12′-15’ tall.  It is very hardy, down to -20f.  This vigorous bamboo makes an attractive evergreen specimen or when grouped, creates an excellent hedge.

High heat mixed with high humidity would probably be fatal for the Fargesia, so this might not be a plant for those in the southeast states.  Try instead, any of our Bambusa multiplex or Thamnocalamus.
