-demissa (Lanzhou) One of the most hardy bamboos growing at the most northern limit. In their natural growing place near "Lanzhou" under difficult circumstances F. demissa only gets between 1 and 2 meter high but in the west it will become somewhat higher. The different clones gradually shows their own character. Sometimes it is seen as a subspecies of F. nitida but according Demoly F. demissa it differs enough to have the status of a species. In China some years ago there had been experiments with sowing. This would indicate that F. demissa is "new Generation"!? The supplier from China has confirmed this.
