Blue Fountain Bamboo is an herbaceous evergreen perennial with a shapely form and gracefully arching stalks. Its relatively fine texture sets it apart from other garden plants with less refined foliage. Blue Fountain Bamboo is primarily valued in the landscape for its cascading habit of growth. Its narrow leaves remain green in color throughout the year.
This imposing selection makes a beautiful screen or accent in the garden; stems color is purple to gray-blue; this bamboo is even tolerant to full sun, but prefers some shade; a non-invasive but vigorous variety. It is a relatively low maintenance plant, and can be pruned at anytime. It has no significant negative characteristics. (Source: Skillins Greenhouses)
