Blue Fountain is a cold hardy clumping bamboo from China. It has delicate canes and feathery leaves.  Blue fountain is a cold hardy variety named for the purple coloration that is seen on the canes of mature plants.  This is a great choice for a garden piece or to grow in a container. If you want to use a clumping bamboo to form a screen or fence, it is possible, but it will take quite awhile with this particular variety.
